When Jesus left his heavenly throne

When Jesus left his Heavenly throne,
he chose an humble birth;
like us, unhonored and unknown,
he came to dwell on earth.

Like him may be found below
in wisdom's path of peace;
like him in grace and knowledge grow
as years and strength increase.

Sweet were his words tand kind his look,
when mothers round him pressed;
their infants in his arms he took,
and on his bosom blessed.

Safe from the world's alluring harms,
beneath his watchful eye,
O, thus encircled in his arms
may we for ever lie!
