SEE HIM LYING ON A BED OF STRAW

See him lying on a bed of straw 
Draughty stable with an open door 
Mary cradling the babe she bore 
The Prince of Glory is His name.


Oh, now carry me to Bethlehem 
To see the Lord appear to men 
Just as poor as was the stable then 
The prince of glory when he came.

 

Star of silver sweeps across the skies 
Show where Jesus in the manger lies 
Shepherds swiftly from your stupor rise 
To see the Saviour of the world.

 

Mine are riches from Thy poverty 
From Thine innocence, eternity 
Mine, forgiveness by Thy death for me 
Child of sorrow, for my joy.

 

Angels, sing again the song you sang 
Bring God's glory to the heart of man 
Sing, "Bethlehem's little baby can 
Be salvation to the soul."
