Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.@Luke 2:12

From Christmas Carols, by James M. McLaughlin (Boston, Massachusetts: Ginn and Company, 1915), number 2 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Refrain

Come, come, come to the manger,
Children, come, to the children’s king;
Sing, sing, chorus of angels,
Stars of morning, o’er Bethlehem sing!

He lies ’mid the beasts of the stall,
Who is maker and Lord of us all,
The wintry wind blows cold and dreary,
See, He weeps, the world is weary;
Lord, have pity and mercy on me!

Refrain

He leaves all His glory behind,
To be born and to die for mankind;
With grateful beasts His cradle chooses,
Thankless man His love refuses;
Lord, have pity and mercy on me!

Refrain

To the manger of Bethlehem come,
To the Savior Emmanuel’s home;
The heav’nly hosts above are singing,
Set the Christmas bells a-ringing,
Lord, have pity and mercy on me!
