The Manger Lyrics

1- Why the manger my sweet Lord, why the manger?

Why the manger Lord of hosts, why the manger?

You are the Lord of all creation,

Hosts powers and denominations,

And to You they offer oblations;

How come then You chose a manger?


2- Why the manger my sweet Lord, why the manger?

Why the manger Lord of hosts, why the manger?

So that the poor can understand,

Your mercies are near at hand,

Willingly follow Your just command;

This is why You chose a manger.


3- Why the manger my sweet Lord, why the manger?

Why the manger Lord of hosts, why the manger?

So that the rich can as well see,

Heaven is the treasure to be,

And to the Lord they turn their plea;

This is why You chose a manger.


4- Now I know why the Lord chose a manger,

King of kings walked on earth as a stranger,

In swaddling clothes He was wrapped,

Like humans the Virgin nursed,

And on her pure chest He napped,

And was pleased to be born in a manger.
