The Crib aroused my feelings,
For on its clean straw lair
Were Mary and Joseph kneeling
In solitude and prayer.

II
No royal residence did seek.
Humility was the thing
That left them in a stable bleak
For the birth of Christ the King.
III
And Bethlehem was in their mind,
As the birth-place of Thy Son.
From Satan's wiles to save mankind
Into the world had come.
IV
In company with the ass and ox,
Laid on a bed of straw.
Devoid of all regal frocks
The light of day first saw.
V
The map the three wise men
A guiding star they followed
Into the stable at Bethlehem
That remains for ever hallowed.
VI
Now on every Christmas morning
Glad tidings to the world does bring
The Saviour of mankind is born
Jesus Christ the King.
