1. That night in the stable it must have been chilly,

So I would have cradled and warmed Baby Jesus,

warmed Baby Jesus as His love warms me.

2. That night in the stable it must have been bright there,

with Bethlehem’s starlight around Baby Jesus,

Brightening Jesus as He brightens me.

3. That night in the stable it must have been peaceful

as Mary so lovingly held Baby Jesus,

loving Lord Jesus, and He, too, loves me.
