1. Jesus, holy, undefiled,
 Listen to a little child.
 Thou hast sent the glorious light,
 Chasing far the silent night.

2. Thou hast sent the sun to shine
 O'er this glorious world of Thine.
 Warmth to give, and pleasant glow,
 On each tender flower below.

3. Now the little birds arise,
 Chirping gaily in the skies;
 Thee their tiny voices praise
 In the early songs they raise.

4. Thou by whom the birds are fed,
 Give to me my daily bread;
 And Thy Holy Spirit give,
 Without whom I cannot live.

5. Make me, Lord, obedient, mild,
 As becomes a little child;
 All day long, in every way,
 Teach me what to do and say.

6. Make me, Lord, in work and play,
 Thine more truly every day;
 And, when Thou at last shall come,
 Take me to Thy heavenly home.
