Lyrics: The sheep are bleating
The donkey is sleeping
The cattle are eating their manger hay
In this stable dreary rests Joseph and Mary
And her little infant boy born on that day.
As the night is widening
A new star is rising
As it shines its lighting up the earth.
Yet within this stable lowly
A greater light is glowing
Its God's own son of humble holy birth.

While the child is sleeping
Shepherds come to seek him.
They meet Him and greet Him that Holy night.
Stable light is dimming
The darkness is spinning
It seems the Child is shimmering with heaven's light.
Stable light's declining
The torch light is rising
As it shines its lighting up the earth
Yet within this stable lowly a greater light is glowing
Its God's own son of humble holy birth.

Now the day is breaking
the baby is awakening
Sunrise is making the shadows go.
As the sun is climbing
All in the stable's finding
The wakened babe is shining bright with heaven's glow.
Daylight is rising
The bright sun is shining
With its rays its lighting up the earth
Yet within this stable lowly the greatest light is glowing.
Its God's own son of humble holy birth.

He's Jesus Christ the greatest light on earth.
He's the greatest light of all the earth.
