1.
Lo, a Child, born to low estate, lies where ox and lamb are fed
Nor was found a place more worthy, for this Child no softer bed
Born to wear a crown of glory, brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger is King of kings and Lord of lords

2.
Lo his palace is a stable, and his robes are swaddling bands
Starlight the gem upon his brow, love the scepter in his hand
Born to wear a crown of glory, brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger is King of kings and Lord of lords

3.
Holy infant, Son of Mary, born in Bethlehem this night
He shall be enthroned in heaven, robed in honor, robed in light
Born to wear a crown of glory, brighter far than earth affords
For this Child laid in a manger is King of kings and Lord of lords
