SUFJAN STEVENS


The Friendly Beasts Lyrics

Jesus our brother, strong and good
Was humbly born in a stable rude
And the friendly beasts around Him stood
Jesus our brother, strong and good

"I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown
"I carried His mother up hill and down
I carried His mother to Bethlehem town?
"I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown

"I," said the cow, all white and red
"I gave Him my manger for His bed
I gave Him my hay to pillow His head?
"I," said the cow, all white and red
"I," said the sheep with curly horn
"I gave Him my wool for His blanket warm
He wore my coat on Christmas morn'?
"I," said the sheep with curly horn

"I," said the dove from rafters high
"I cooed Him to sleep so He would not cry
We cooed Him to sleep, my mate and I"
"I," said the dove from rafters high

Thus every beast by some good spell
In the stable dark was glad to tell
Of the gifts he gave Emmanuel
Of the gifts he gave Emmanuel
