KPRI 44 Adalah di Kota Daud
Once In Royal David’s City
C. Frances Alexander, 1848
H. John Gauntlett, 1849
Adalah di kota Daud, kandang satu yang rendah.
Di palungan dibaringkan oleh ibu bayinya.
Anak Maria lahirlah, Yesus Kristus nama-Nya.
Anak itu sudah turun, dari kemuliaan-Nya.
Tuhan surga serta bumi lahir di tempat rendah.
Jadi sobat dan teman orang yang dihinakan.
Pengasihan Anak ini, menebus manusia.
Nanti kita lihat Dia di kemuliaan-Nya.
Kita pun dipimpin-Nya, ke kerajaan baka.
Once in royal David's city
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her Baby,
In a manger for His bed:
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little Child.
He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall;
With the poor, and mean, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.
And, through all His wondrous childhood,
He would honour and obey,
Love, and watch the lowly maiden,
In whose gentle arms He lay:
Christian children all must be
Mild, obedient, good as He.
For He is our childhood's pattern;
Day by day like us He grew;
He was little, weak, and helpless,
Tears and smiles like us He knew;
And He feeleth for our sadness,
And He shareth in our gladness.
And our eyes at last shall see Him,
Through His own redeeming love,
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in Heav’n above;
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone.
Not in that poor lowly stable,
With the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him; but in heaven,
Set at God's right hand on high;
When like stars His children crowned,
All in white shall wait around.
