|Text:||The Little Lord Jesus|
|Tune:||[A baby once slept in a manger]|
|Composer:||Florence W. Williams|
1 A baby once slept in a manger,
A mother sat close by His side;
This babe was the Little Lord Jesus
Who for our sins suffered and died.
Born this blessed morning,
Hail Him! hail Him!
On this Christmas day.
2 Wise men sought this little Lord Jesus
Who lived on the earth long ago,
They came with their beautiful treasures
To Bethlehem’s plain through the snow. [Refrain]
3 Now if we will seek this Lord Jesus
He’ll fill all our hearts with His love;
And gently His spirit will guide us
To beautiful mansions above. [Refrain]
