Once In David’s city royal
Emmanuel, in a simple manger
born to give his all
Lies helpless in his mother’s arms.
Joseph silent and adoring
with strength and guiding light
soon will lead his treasured family
away from Herod’s evil might.
Hidden life in Nazareth beckons
There to live a playful childhood
All the while his heart awakens
To His Father’s loving will.
