Blessed Jesus, High in Glory

Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, high in glory,
Seen of saints and angels fair,
Children's voices now adore Thee;

And Thou reignest now above us,
That we too may reign with Thee.

3 Give us grace to trust Thee wholly;
Give us each a childlike heart;
Make us meek and pure and holy,
Fit to see Thee as Thou art.

4 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Bless us all our life below,
Till we each that Heaven inherit
Which the childlike only know.
