Christmas Carols - The Friendly Beasts

English

The Friendly Beasts

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 her safely to Bethlehem town."
"I", said the donkey, shaggy and brown.
 
"I", said the cow all white and red.
"I gave Him my manger for a bed."
"I gave Him my hay to pillow His head".
"I", said the cow all white and red.
 
"I", said the sheep with the curly horn.
"I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm."
"He wore my coat on that Christmas morn."
"I", said the sheep with the 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.
 
"I", said the camel yellow and black.
"Over the desert upon my back."
"I brought Him a gift in the wise mens' pack."
"I", said the camel yellow and black.
 
Thus every beast remembering it well.
In the stable dark was so proud to tell
Of the gifts that they gave Emmanuel,
The gifts that they gave Emmanuel.
