OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
145
2 He came down to earth from heaven Who is God and Lord of all, And His shelter was a stable, And His cradle was a stall; With the poor, and mean, and lowly, Lived on earth our Saviour holy.
4 For He is our childhood's pattern;
Day by day like us He grew; He was little, weak and helpless,
Tears and smiles like us He knew; And He feeleth for our sadness, And He shareth in our gladness.
3 And, through all His wondrous childhood,    g And our eyes at last shall see Him,
He would honor and obey,                               Through His own redeeming love;
Love, and watch the lowly maiden                For that Child so dear and gentle
In whose gentle arms He lay;                         Is our Lord in heaven above;
Christian children all must be                         And He leads His children on
Mild, obedient, good as He.                              To the place where He is gone.
6 Not in that poor lowly stable,
With the oxen standing by, We shall see Him; but in Heaven,
Set at God's right hand on high; When like stars His children crowned, All in white shall wait around.
Cecil Frances Alexander, 184S J
