ONCE IN ROYAL DAVID'S CITY (Traditional) (Words: Cecil Frances Humphreys Alexander, 1848 / Music: "Irby," Henry John Gauntlett, 1849) Petula Clark - 1957 Vienna Boys Choir - 1988 The Players - 1989 Lorrie Line - 1995 Eric Rigler - 1996 Connie Brown - 1997 Also recorded by: Mantovani; The Chieftains; King's College Choir; Mel Weston; Canterbury Cathedral Choir; The Ivy League; Choir Of St. Paul's Cathedral. Once in royal David's city Stood a lowly cattle-shed Where a mother laid her Baby In a manger for His bed; Mary 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 mean, 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.
