Lyrics: The sheep are bleating <br/>The donkey is sleeping <br/>The cattle are eating their manger hay <br/>In this stable dreary rests Joseph and Mary <br/>And her little infant boy born on that day. <br/>As the night is widening <br/>A new star is rising <br/>As it shines its lighting up the earth. <br/>Yet within this stable lowly <br/>A greater light is glowing <br/>Its God's own son of humble holy birth. <br/> <br/>While the child is sleeping <br/>Shepherds come to seek him. <br/>They meet Him and greet Him that Holy night. <br/>Stable light is dimming <br/>The darkness is spinning <br/>It seems the Child is shimmering with heaven's light. <br/>Stable light's declining <br/>The torch light is rising <br/>As it shines its lighting up the earth <br/>Yet within this stable lowly a greater light is glowing <br/>Its God's own son of humble holy birth. <br/> <br/>Now the day is breaking <br/>the baby is awakening <br/>Sunrise is making the shadows go. <br/>As the sun is climbing <br/>All in the stable's finding <br/>The wakened babe is shining bright with heaven's glow. <br/>Daylight is rising <br/>The bright sun is shining <br/>With its rays its lighting up the earth <br/>Yet within this stable lowly the greatest light is glowing. <br/>Its God's own son of humble holy birth. <br/> <br/>He's Jesus Christ the greatest light on earth. <br/>He's the greatest light of all the earth.
