Jesus our brother, kind and good
Was humbly born in a stable rude
And the friendly beasts around Him stood
Jesus our brother, kind and good.
"I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown,
"I carried His mother up hill and down;
I carried her safely to Bethlehem town."
"I," said the donkey, shaggy and brown.
It's a good thing I liked the animals so much because in all the Christmas nativities I was part of I was always cast as a farm animal. Cow, donkey, camel. In my kid mind they were a lot better because they did something, not like Mary who just sat quietly - BORING.
(I do as an adult have great respect for Mary, the real Mary)
