Gentle Mary Laid Her Child lyrics:

Gentle Mary laid her Child
Lowly in a manger
There He lay, the undefiled
To the world a Stranger.
Such a Babe in such a place
Can he be the Saviour?
Ask the saved of all the race
Who have found His favor.

Angels sang about His birth,
Wise men sought and found Him;
Heaven's star shone brightly forth
Glory all around Him.
Shepherds saw the wondrous sight,
Heard the angels singing;
All the plains were lit that night,
All the hills were ringing.

Gentle Mary laid her Child
Lowly in a manger;
He is still the undefiled,
But no more a Stranger.
Son of God of humble birth,
Beautiful the story;
Praise His Name in all the earth,
Hail! the King of Glory!
