Once within a Lowly Stable
“Once within a Lowly Stable,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 41
1. Once within a lowly stable,
Where the sheep and oxen lay,
A loving mother laid her baby
In a manger filled with hay.
Mary was the mother there,
And the Christ that baby fair.
2. God sent us this loving baby
From his home in heav’n above,
And he came down to show all people
How to help and how to love.
This is why the angels bright
Sang for joy that Christmas night.
