1 Little Baby Jesus, born today,
Come into my heart and with me stay,
Fill my soul with love and trust in Thee,
Evermore abide with me!
2 In a manger lowly Thou wast laid,
Tho' Thy hands the heav'ns and earth have made;
Son of God eternal and my Lord,
Keep me ever by Thy Word!
3 Little Baby Jesus, Savior dear,
Let me feel Thy presence ever near,
Cleanse me with Thy blood from all my sin,
Make me pure and whole within!
4 All my help alone in Thee is found,
All my trust alone in Thee I ground,
Clothe me wholly in Thy righteousness
As my glorious, perfect dress.
5 Little Baby Jesus, born today,
Let me walk forever in Thy way;
Fill my heart with strength and love divine,
Let Thy favor on me shine!
6 Thou who hast my soul so dearly bought
Without Thee, my Strength, I can do naught,
Come into my heart and live in me
Now and in eternity!
