O Little Child of Mary!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

O little Child of Mary,
Who’s Father’s from above;
Who’s made our Christmas merry,
Revealing God’s true love.
God’s gracious declaration,
His Saviour from on high;
Expressing free salvation,
That we could never buy.

O little Child so perfect,
Born from a sinful womb;
Conceived without a defect,
No sin, no human gloom.
Brought by the Holy Spirit,
Into this world of sin;
Thus by His sovereign merit,
That we should be forgiven.

O little Child from heaven,
Born not of human will;
Our Father’s Son begotten,
Sends through our hearts a thrill.
That He should send us Jesus,
Come to this world of sin;
To live as one with us,
Through grace our hearts to win.

(Tune: Angels Story; Rutherford 76. 76.D)
