Have lyrics, need music "In the Manger of Bethlehem"

In the Manger of Bethlehem

One night long ago over Bethlehem's plain

The stars shone with radiant light;

The shepherds were watching their flocks where they lay,

When suddenly burst on their sight

A vision of angels, who sang a sweet song

Of peace and good-will unto men:

"A Saviour is born," cried the heavenly throng,

"In a manger in Bethlehem."


Seeking, they sought till they found Him,

Jesus, the Saviour of men;

Humbly they knelt and adored Him,

In the manger of Bethlehem.

Three wise men beheld a most wonderful star,

Announcing the birth of a King;

It showed them the way from their countries afar,

Their presence and homage to bring;

In great kingly palace they sought Him, but then

The star's light was hidden from them;

They found Him, at last, in the sweet virgin's care,

In a manger in Bethlehem.


So still we must seek Him with longing untold,

With purpose unchanging and true;

We cannot bring off'rings of incense and gold,

His infant face we cannot view;

But we may His glorious gospel adorn,

Give glory unto His great name;

To all we may tell of the Christ who was born

In a manger in Bethlehem.

Do you have any other of the verses for this song? I must have been 3-5 years old when I heard this at I believe was a Baptist church.
