Once in royal David’s city, stood a lowly cattle shed;
Where a mother laid her Baby, in a manger for His bed

Sufjan Stevens has recorded a great deal of Christmas music, and I included this track on the 2008 mix. I think this was also the first version I’d heard of this song – Wikipedia says it’s originally from 1848.
