Christmas Crib at St. James
Softly to the little stable,
Softly, for a moment, come.
("Bring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella")

Christmas Crib at St. James
His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
worshipped the Beloved with a kiss.
("In the Bleak Midwinter")

Christmas Crib at St. James
O, that birth forever blessed,
When the Virgin, full of Grace,
By the Holy Ghost conceiving,
Bore the Savior of our race.
("Of the Father's Love Begotten")

Christmas Crib at St. James
As Joseph was a-walking,
He heard angels sing,
"This night there shall be born
Our heavenly King!"
("The Cherry Tree Carol")

Christmas Crib at St. James
Saint Joseph, too, was by to tend the child,
To guard him, and protect his mother mild.
("The Snow Lay on the Ground")

Christmas Crib at St. James
Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world.
("It came upon the midnight clear")

Christmas Crib at St. James
Ox and ass before him bow,
And he is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!  Christ is born today.
("Good Christian Men Rejoice")

Christmas Crib at St. James
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him, give my heart.
("In the Bleak Midwinter")

Christmas Crib at St. James
Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
("Away in a manger")

Christmas Crib at St. James
Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn king!
("Angels we have heard on high")
