In the temple, in the temple

Representative Text

1 Long ago within the temple
Stood a little boy one day,
And the doctors wondered greatly
At the words they heard Him say.

It was Jesus Christ, our Saviour!
He was but a little child,
But the light of Heaven was shining
In His face so pure and mild.

2 With the teachers there they found Him,
Though a lowly, learning youth,
But His answers as He told them
Were complete with heavenly truth. [Refrain]

4 Let us ever then be eager
To sit down at Jesus' feet,
To be learning from our Saviour,
And His lessons to repeat. [Refrain]
