Child in the manger

Child in the manger,
infant of Mary;
outcast and stranger,
Lord of all;
child who inherits
all our transgressions,
all our demerits
on him fall.

Once the most holy
child of salvation
gently and lowly
lived below;
now as our glorious
mighty Redeemer,
see him victorious
o'er each foe.

Prophets foretold him,
infant of wonder;
angels behold him
on his throne;
worthy our Savior
of all their praises;
happy for ever
are his own.

Mary Macdonald (1789 - 1872); trans. Lachlan Macbean (1853 - 1931)
