This is the stable where Jesus was born.

Joseph

This is Joseph, kind and care-worn, who cared for Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Donkey

This is the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Angel

This is the Angel, who burst into song

Praising God for the miracle hurried along

By the task of the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Shepherds

These are the shepherds amazed by the song

Of the Angel, who brought their sheep along

To join with the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Star

This is the Star, shining bright in the sky

That was seen by the Shepherds amazed by the song

Of the Angel, who then brought their sheep along

To join with the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Wise Men

These are the Wise Men, who sought the Most High

As they followed the Star that shown in the sky,

That was seen by the Shepherds amazed by the song

Of the Angel, who then brought their sheep along

To join with the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


The Camels

These are the camels, laden with gold

Who came with the Wise Men, who sought the Most High

As they followed the Star that shown in the sky,

That was seen by the Shepherds amazed by the song

Of the Angel, who then brought their sheep along

To join with the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.


Jesus the King

This is the child, Jesus the King

Who is God here on Earth, as the prophets foretold.

And here are the camels, laden with gold

Who came with the Wise Men, who sought the Most High

As they followed the Star that shown in the sky,

That was seen by the Shepherds amazed by the song

Of the Angel, who then brought their sheep along

To join with the donkey, with back firm and strong,

Who was led by Joseph, kind and care-worn,

As it carried Mother Mary, so tired and forlorn,

Who found rest in the stable where Jesus was born.
