Once In Royal Davids City Chords

E                                   C#m   B7     E
Once in royal David's city, stood a lowly cattle shed
E                                 C#m    B7      D
Where a mother laid her baby in a manger for his bed
A    E        B7     E     A     E          B7     E
Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/h/hal_leonard/once_in_royal_davids_city_crd.html ]
He came down to earth from heaven, who is God and Lord of all
And his shelter was a stable and his cradle was a stall
With the poor and meek and lowly, lived on earth our saviour holy

Jesus is our childhood's pattern, day by day like us he grew
He was little, weak and helpless, tears and smiles like us he knew
And he feeleth for our sadness, and he shareth in our gladness

And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love
For that child so dear and gentle, is our lord in heav'n above
And he leads his children on, to the place where he is gone.
