06. Sixth Carol

 

Jesus, Little Boy, lying there so sweet:

Jesus, Little Boy, here we come to greet.

In that stable bare

We see Thee lying helpless there:

Jesus, here we come to worship

At Thine infant feet.

 

Jesus, Little King, holding in Thy palm

Gifts from rich and poor, citadel and farm;

Hear our simplest prayer

And let us in Thy goodness share!

Jesus, keep our hearts and spirits

Safe from sin and harm.
