A Saviour Has Been Born To Us

The hour approaches
The time is so near
He comes into the world
A Child so dear

His mother is young
She is virtuous and graced
Her husband a devout man
Doesn't know what He'll face

The rise and fall of many
Depend upon this Child
Subject to His Mother
He is tender and mild

Lo comes the star
Foretelling of His birth
The salvation of the world
What one Life is worth

To look upon Baby Jesus
Is to see that Heaven is real
The profoundness of this moment
The heart can not conceal

True joy is not pleasure
Or any earthly delight
True joy came into the world
That one holy night

Did His mother know
All that He would do
Through the tree of the cross
He would make the world anew

Because of this beautiful Babe
Full of truth and divinity
I have great hope and love
That I may see Him in eternity

Please dearest Baby Jesus
Come deep within my heart
Remain with me all days
Let us never be apart

Help me Baby Jesus
To love Thee evermore
Help me follow Thee
For the Cross let me adore

In the end dear Baby Jesus
Come for me and never let me go
Let me stay with Thee Baby Jesus
My heart with love aglow

Teach me Baby Jesus
The meekness of Thy ways
Let me love Thee always
For the rest of all my days
