Jesus, when a little child

Jesus, when a little child

Published in 30 hymnals

Full Text

1 Jesus, when a little child,
Taught us what we ought to be;
Holy, harmless, undefiled,
Was the Savior's infancy;
All the Father's glory shone
In the person of His Son.

2 As in age and strength He grew,
Heavenly wisdom filled! His breast;
Crowds attentive round Him drew,
Wond'ring at their infant Guest;
Gazed upon His lovely face,
Saw Him full of truth and grace.

3 In His heavenly Father's house,
Jesus spent His early days;
There He paid His solemn vows,
There proclaimed His Father's praise;
Thus it was His lot to gain
Favor both with God and man.

4 Jesus, let me be Thy child,
Cleanse me with Thy saving blood,
Keep my footsteps undefiled,
Thou my Guide and highest Good;
In the end let there be given
Me a place with Thee in heaven.
