Once in royal David’s city
stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby
in a manger bed:

Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little child.

The promise kept
Its longing of my heart for God in flesh
Through this child, all earth is blessed

He came down to earth from heaven,
who is God and Lord of all,
and his shelter was a stable,
and his cradle was a stall;
with the poor, the scorned, the lowly,
lived on earth our Savior holy.

Our answered prayer
Our faith’s reward
Redemption’s near
Redemption’s here

We will rejoice
We will worship you, our Savior and our Lord
We will join creation’s voice
