Dearest Jesus, we are here,|
Gladly Thy command obeying;
With this child we now draw near
In accord with Thine own saying
That to Thee it shall be given
As a child and heir of heaven.
2. Yea, Thy word is clear and plain,
3. Therefore hasten we to Thee,|
In our arms this infant bearing;
Let us here Thy glory see
Let this child, Thy mercy sharing,
In Thine arms be shielded ever,
Thine on earth and Thine forever.
4. Gracious Head, Thy member own;
5. Now into Thy heart we pour|
Prayers that from our hearts proceeded.
Our petitions heavenward soar;
May our warm desires be heeded!
Write the name we now have given,
Write it in the book of heaven.
