189. Child in the Manger

1 Child in the manger,
Infant of Mary;
Outcast 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.
