1 In yonder stable gleams a light,
Serenely calm, divinely fair;
The King hath come to earth tonight,
Behold Him resting lowly there.

Refrain:
The light of heaven seems to fold
Him as in a wondrous dress,
In Bethle’m’s manger we behold
Him, the Lord our Righteousness;
The light of heaven seems to fold
Him as in a wondrous dress,
In Bethle’m’s manger we behold
Him, the Lord our Righteousness.

2 Behold the Lamb of God from heav’n,
Bow low before His Infant feet;
The pow’r that rescues you and me
Is vested in that Christ-child sweet. [Refrain]

3 Behold the Man of Galilee,
He rested first in Bethle’m’s stall;
Upon this blessed, blessed night,
Come worship Him, your All in All. [Refrain]
