104. Thou Holy Jesus, meek and mild

1 Thou Holy Jesus, meek and mild,
Wast born today, a little Child;
So ev'rywhere, both far and near,
This day brings children merry cheer.

2 Though I'm but little, bless me still,
And guard my path from ev'ry ill;
Bathed in Thy gracious mercy clear,
Make my soul clean, Thou Savior dear.

3 That I may be an angel too,
And only seek Thy will to do;
Grant me but this, dear Savior mine,
To keep me humble, make me thine.
