Died in a manger, Lord my Lord.
Hills of Afghan white,
Nights of Afghan cold;
Christmas in a winter
Unbearably old.

Died in a manger, Lord my Lord.
What child is this
Who dies tonight?
Nights of Afghan cold,
Hills of Afghan white.

Died in a manger, Lord my Lord.
Large-eyed grief as solemn
As Life's hard light:
This child is beautiful
And quiet tonight.
