Jesus, joy of the highest heaven
Born as a little baby under a wondrous star
Like us, crying He takes His first breath
Held by His mother, helpless
Close to her beating heart

* Jesus, laid in a lowly manger
Facing a world of dangers
Come to turn me a stranger
Into a child of God

Jesus, King of the highest heaven
Learning to take His first steps
That He might bring us life
Like us, knowing our smiles and sorrows
He showed the way to follow
A way that is true and right

** Jesus, take away every darkness
Steady my simple footsteps
That I might in Your goodness
Live as a child of God
