The Baptist Hymnal No. 101
Text: Joseph Simpson Cook
Music: A Spring Carol, c. 14th Century; arr. Ernest MacMillan

Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Gentle Mary laid her Child 
	Lowly in a manger; 
	There He lay, the undefiled, 
	To the world a stranger: 
	Such a Babe in such a place, 
	Can He be the Savior? 
	Ask the saved of all the race 
	Who have found His favor. 

2.	Angels sang about His birth; 
	Wise men sought and found Him; 
	Heaven's star shone brightly forth, 
	Glory all around Him: 
	Shepherds saw the wondrous sight, 
	Heard the angels singing; 
	All the plains were lit that night, 
	All the hills were ringing. 

3.	Gentle Mary laid her Child 
	Lowly in a manger; 
	He is still the undefiled, 
	But no more a stranger: 
	Son of God, of humble birth, 
	Beautiful the story; 
	Praise His name in all the earth, 
	Hail the King of glory!
