1 Gentle Mary laid her child
lowly in a manger;
there he lay, the Undefiled,
but no more a stranger.
Such a babe in such a place,
can he be the Savior?
Ask the saved of all the race
who have found his favor.

2 Angels sang about his birth,
wise men sought and found him;
heaven's star shone brightly forth,
glory all around him.
Shepherds saw the wondrous sight,
heard the angels singing;
all the plains were lit that night,
all the hills were ringing.

3 Gentle Mary laid her child
lowly in a manger;
he is still the Undefiled,
but no more a stranger.
Son of God of humble birth,
beautiful the story;
praise his name in all the earth,
hail the King of glory!
