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

Refrain:
It was Jesus! It was Jesus!
He was but a little child,
But the light of heav’n was shining
In His face so pure and mild.

2 It was Jesus who was teaching
And they listened to His word,
As He told them of His mission
From the great and mighty Lord. [Refrain]

3 With the teachers there they found Him,
Tho’ a lowly, learning youth,
But His answers as He told them
Were complete with Bible truth. [Refrain]

4 “Let us ever then be loyal
To our God, and church, and home,”
Ever faithful, ever trusting,
“Never minding what may come.” [Refrain]
