THE FRIENDLY BEASTS




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.
