Representative Text

1 Beautiful Jesus, bright star of the earth,
Loving and tender from moment of birth;
Beautiful Jesus, though lowly thy lot,
Born in a manger, so rude was thy cot.

Beautiful Christ, beautiful Christ,
Fairest of thousands, and pearl of great price;
Beautiful Christ, beautiful Christ,
Gladly we welcome thee, beautiful Christ.

2 Beautiful Jesus, what treasure you brought,
When from Heaven’s splendour the earth first you sought.
Beautiful Jesus, beloved of God,
Emblem of purity, emblem of good.

3 Beautiful Jesus, so gentle and mild,
Light of the sinner in ways dark and wild;
Beautiful Jesus, O save such just now,
As at thy feet they in penitence bow!
