Verse 1: Jesus, good above all other, Gentle child of gentle mother, In a stable born our brother, Give us grace to persevere.
Verse 2: Jesus, cradled in a manger, For us facing every danger, Living as a homeless stranger, We make You our King most dear.
Verse 3: Jesus, for Your people dying, Risen Master, death defying, Lord in heaven, grace supplying, By Your altar, keep us near.
Verse 4: Jesus, who, our sorrows bearing, All our tho’ts and hopes are sharing, Unto man the truth declaring, Help us all Your truth to hear.
Verse 5: Lord, in all our doings guide us; Let not pride and hate divide us. We go on with You beside us, And with joy will persevere.
