Lyrics:

1.When lowly as a manger is humility in man,
   That he will start his learning in the stable of the Lamb.
   When shepherds teach their flocks to seek the life within,
   And follow truth and right, and separate from sin,

             When each soul's star rises
              To light up heaven's span,
              On that starry holy night
              Christ is born in man!

2.When man can learn a lesson from the Bethlehem of earth,
   That he may rise in spirit that transcends this earthly birth;
   When wisemen present their gifts to fill the lamps of Ur
   With light and life and love just like gold, frankincense and myrrh,

              When each soul's star rises
              To light up heaven's span,
              On that starry holy night
              Christ is born in man!
