The Friendly Beasts lyrics:

Jesus, our Brother, strong and good
Was humbly born in a stable rude
And the friendly beasts around Him stood
Jesus, our Brother, strong and good.

"I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown
"I carried His mother uphill and down
I carried His mother to Bethlehem town
I" said the donkey, shaggy and brown.

"I," said the cow, all white and red
"I gave Him my manger for His bed
I gave Him 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
"I 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.

Thus all the beasts, by some good spell
In the stable dark were glad to tell
Of the gifts they gave Emmanuel
The gifts they gave Emmanuel.
