Hal Leonard – Once In Royal Davids City chords

E C#m B7 EOnce in royal David's city, stood a lowly cattle shed
E C#m B7 DWhere a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed
A E B7 E A E B7 EMary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child
He came down to earth from heaven, who is God and Lord of all And his shelter was a stable and his cradle was a stall With the poor and meek and lowly, lived on earth our saviour holy Jesus is our childhood's pattern, day by day like us he grew He was little, weak and helpless, tears and smiles like us he knew And he feeleth for our sadness, and he shareth in our gladness And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love For that child so dear and gentle, is our lord in heav'n above And he leads his children on, to the place where he is gone.
