Blessed Jesus, high in glory,
Seen of saints and angels fair,
Children’s voices now adore thee;
Listen to thy children’s prayer.
Gentle Jesus, thou dost love us,
Thou hast died upon the tree,
And thou reignest now above us,
That we too might reign with thee.
Give us grace to trust thee wholly;
Give us each a childlike heart;
Make us meek and pure and holy,
Meet to see thee as thou art.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Bless us all our life below
Till we each that heaven inherit
Which the childlike only know,
Which the childlike only know.
