Original words by C F Alexander:

Once in royal David's city
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her Baby,
In a manger for His bed:
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ, her little Child.

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 mean, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.

For He 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 cares when we are sad,
And he shares when we are glad.

And our eyes at last shall see Him,
Through His own redeeming love;
For that Child so dear and gentle,
Is our Lord in heaven above:
And He leads His children on,
To the place where He is gone.

A new arrangement of this well-loved carol for band. For once, the baritones are featured, rather than the cornets at the beginning of the first verse. The second verse is a fairly straightforward interpretation but with muted cornets echoing each other with distant fanfares inbetween the statements of the melody on Principal cornet. The final verse is a huge, loud full band statement of the music with bells chiming throughout.
