105. Child in the Manger

1. Child in the manger,
Infant of Mary;
Out-cast and stranger,
Lord of all;
Child who inherits
All our transgressions,
All our demerits
On Him fall.

2. Once the most holy
Child of salvation
Gently and lowly
Lived below;
Now as our glorious
Mighty Redeemer,
See Him victorious
O'er each foe.

3. Prophets foretold Him
Infant of wonder;
Angels behold Him
On His throne;
Worthy our Savior
Of all our praises;
Happy forever
Are His own.
