  • Jesus our brother, kind and good
    Was humbly born in a stable of wood
    And the friendly beasts around Him stood
    Jesus our brother kind and good

    I, said the donkey, shaggy and brown
    I carried His Mother up hill and down
    I carried His Mother to Bethlehem town
    I, said the donkey, shaggy and brown

    I, said the sheep with curly horn
    I gave Him my wool for a 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 love and I
    I, said the dove, from the rafters high

    Thus, every beast, by some good spell
    In the stable dark was glad to tell
    Of the gift he gave Emanuel
    Of the gift he gave Emanuel
