Meek and Mild

She came riding on a donkey
From many towns away
Ready to give birth to her first child
The ride she took was rugged
The trail sometimes was steep
Her journey would go on for many miles

Joseph walked and held the reins
Guiding her along
Wishing he could ease the pain she felt
When they reached their destination
Relief did fill their souls
They sought a room to settle for the night

The innkeeper did all He could
To find for them a room
But a stable was the only place he had
Mary’s child was born that night
In a manger filled with hay
Wrapped in rags the blessed Savior lay

Meek and mild
Mother and child
Filled all prophecy that night
Angels praised
Shepherds gazed
Below the star so bright

Shepherds watching flocks that night
Were summoned by the angels
Go and see the babe in Bethlehem
He us Savior Christ to all
Peace is what He brings
Glory be to God in the highest

As they knelt before Him
They realized their place
As all of history would mark this day
Simple lowly shepherds
Were called to be the ones
They were the first to bow to Him and pray

Not the rich
Not the mighty
Not the ones in power
He calls us in humility
To worship Him this hour

Meek and mild
Mother and child
Filled all prophecy that night
Angels praised
Shepherds gazed
Below the star so bright
