Swaddling Clothes


So long ago a child was born

In swaddling clothes He lay

Sheep and cattle gathered near

And wise men kneeled to pray


As time went by upon the earth

This child had years to grow

Once He sought a temple’s scribes

To tell them what to know


The Son did speak His Father’s words

Of love and trust and truth

Others must be taught to know

The principles of this youth


He lived His life each every day

By the tenets of which he spoke

They form the basis of our lives

As one we must invoke


So long ago a man did die

In swaddling clothes he lay

He gave His life for all of us

And now it’s time to pray
