Gentle Mary Laid Her Child

Gentle Mary laid her Child

Lowly in a manger;

There He lay, the undefiled,

To the world a Stranger.

Such a Babe in such a place,

Can he be the saviour?

Ask the saved of all the race

Who have found His favour.



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.



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!
