Come, come, come to the manger,
Children, come to the children's King;
Sing, sing,
Chorus of angels,
Stars of morning, o'ver Bethlehem sing.

1. He lies 'mid the beasts of the stall,
Who is Maker and Lord of us all,
The wintry wind blows cold and deary,
See, He weeps, the world is weary,
Lord, have pity and mercy on me. Refrain

2. He leaves all His glory behind,
To be born and to die for mankind;
With grateful beasts His cradle chooses,
Thankless man His love refuses,
Lord, have pity and mercy on me. Refrain

3. To Bethlehem's manger now come,
To the Savior Emmanuel's home;
The heav'nly hosts above are singing,
Set the Christmas bells a-ringing,
Lord, have pity and mercy on me. Refrain


Recorded by Perry Como on his Christmas album "Seasons Greetings From Perry Como." The refrain (alt.) was included in Mr. Como's "Story of the First Christmas."
