1 We sing a loving Jesus
Who left His throne above,
And came to earth to ransom
The children of His love;
It is an oftold story,
And yet we love to tell
How Christ, the King of glory,
Once deigned with man to dwell.

2 We sing a holy Jesus;
No taint of sin defiled
The Babe of David's city,
The pure and stainless child:
O teach us, blessed Saviour,
Thy heavenly grace to seek,
And let our whole behaviour,
Like Thine, be mild and meek.

3 We sing a lowly Jesus,
No Kingly crown He has;
His heart was bowed with anguish,
His face was marred and sad;
In deep humiliation
He came, His work to do;
O Lord of our salvation,
Let us be humble too.

4 We sing a mighty Jesus,
Whose voice could raise the dead;
The sightless eyes He opened,
The famished souls He fed.
Thou camest to deliver
Mankind from sin and shame;
Redeemer and life giver,
We praise Thy holy Name!

5 We sing a coming Jesus;
The time is drawing near,
When Christ with all His Angels
In glory shall appear;
Lord, save us, we entreat Thee,
In this Thy day of grace.
That we may gladly meet Thee,
And see Thee face to face.
