04. Fourth Carol

 

I know not where is Bethlehem

Nor where that stable poor

Which was the birthplace of the Lord

With oxen at the door.

 

I know not where is Nazareth

Which was my Saviour’s home,

Nor where he worked as carpenter

Before the Call did come.

 

I know not where the shepherd lad

Heard angels singing far;

I know not wher the Wise Men three

Behend the lovely star.

 

But this I know, that Jesus Christ

Was once a child like me

And had a Mother and Father, too,

That loved Him dearly.

 

I know He loves all children, now,

And cares for what they do;

Since I love both my parents, you see,

I think I’ll love him too!
