713. Your Little Ones, Dear Lord, Are We

1 Your little ones, dear Lord, are we
And come Your lowly bed to see;
Enlighten ev'ry soul and mind
That we the way to You may find.

2 With songs we hasten You to greet
And humbly fall before your feet.
Oh, blessed hour, oh, sweetest night
That gave You birth, our souls' delight.

3 Oh, draw us wholly to You, Lord,
To us Your constant grace accord;
True faith and love to us impart
That we may hold You in our heart.

4 Until at last we, too, proclaim,
With all Your saints, Your glorious name;
In paradise our songs renew
And praise You as the angels do.
