165. Christ Was Once a Little Baby

1 Christ was once a little baby
Just like you and me:
Born in Bethl’hem of Judea,
Far across the sea;
No room for the little Jesus,
Could be found on earth:
And a stable dark and dreary
Was His place of birth.

2 Day by day the little Jesus
Grew like you and me:
Learned to lisp a pray’r to heaven
At His mother’s knee;
He was poor, but very happy,
Happy in God’s love:
List’ning to His gentle guidance
Coming from above.

3 This is still the same dear Jesus
Of whose birth we sing:
O! ‘tis sweet to tell the story
Of our new-born King,
Who was once a little baby
Just like you and me:
Born in Bethl’hem of Judea
Far across the sea.
