THE FRIENDLY BEASTS (Traditional English Carol) Burl Ives - 1957 Art Garfunkel & Amy Grant - 1986 Linda Russell - 1986 Peter, Paul & Mary - 1988 Garth Brooks - 1992 Cedarmont Kids - 1995 Against the Grain - 1995 David Auerbach - 1997 Riders In The Sky - 1999 Lorie Line (Instr.) - 2000 Wendy Lewis - 2001 Margaret Carlson - 2001 Also recorded by: Louvin Brothers; Riga Boys Choir; Oregon Reportory Singers; National Lutheran Choir; Dan Neale; Johnson Mountain Boys; Philip Brunelle. Jesus our brother, kind and good Was humbly born in a stable rude And the friendly beasts around Him stood Jesus our brother, kind and good. "I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown, "I carried His mother up hill and down; I carried her safely to Bethlehem town." "I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown. "I," said the cow, all white and red "I gave Him my manger for a bed; I gave Him my hay to pillow His head." "I," said the cow, all white and red. "I," said the sheep with curly horn, "I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm; He wore my coat on Christmas morn." "I," said the sheep with curly horn. "I," said the dove from the rafters high, "Cooed Him to sleep that He should not cry; We cooed Him to sleep, my mate and I." "I," said the dove from the rafters high. "I," said the camel, yellow and black, "Over the desert, upon my back, I brought Him a gift in the Wise Men's pack." "I," said the camel, yellow and black. Thus every beast by some good spell In the stable dark was glad to tell Of the gift he gave Emmanuel, The gift he gave Emmanuel. ***** Variation as recorded by Garth Brooks: Jesus our brother kind and good Was humbly born in a stable of wood And the friendly beasts around him stood Jesus our brother kind and good "I" said the donkey shaggy and brown I carried his mother up hill and down I carried him safely to Bethlehem town "I" said the donkey shaggy and brown And "I" said the cow all white and red I gave him my manger for a bed I gave him my hay for to pillow his head "I" said the cow all white and red "I" said the sheep with a curly horn I have him my wool for his blanket warm And he wore my coat on that Christmas morn "I" said the sheep with a curly horn "I" said the dove from the rafters high Cooed him to sleep that he should not cry We cooed him to sleep my love and I "I" said the dove from the rafters high And "I" said the camel all yellow and black Over the desert upon my back I brought him a gift in the wise men's pack "I" said the camel all yellow and black Thus every beast remembering it well In the stable dark was so proud to tell Of the gifts that they gave Emmanuel The gifts that they gave Emmanuel
