"In the Bethlehem Stable"


       
   
1.
'Twas in a lovely stable
Where cattle took their rest,
That once a precious babe was born,
The Christ-child dear and blest.
       
   
2.
The oxen, big and friendly,
Stood gazing by his bed;
The good gray donkey wandered near,
The doves flew overhead.
       
    3. The shepherds from the hillside
To greet the baby came;
The wise men brought him kingly gifts,
The star shone bright as flame.
       
    4. Because of that dear baby
Whose coming blessed the earth,
Our hearts are full of Christmas joy,
and Christmas love and mirth.
