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
