Sweet Babe of Bethlehem

Oh sweet babe of Bethlehem,
How sweet Your name sounds...
Jesus, Saviour sent by God
The Jehovah come to save, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
What cruelty Thou didst have to face...
From birth to death the same
So let us learn to bear with grace, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
When a situation defies us
Let us not just give up, but have courage
To face life with a mild boldness, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem
Give us the humility we need
To understand others and be helpful
When ever we can, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
Fill us with Your love always
Let us not seek to do evil in all our life
Even pardoning enemies, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
Give us the joy and peace we need
Through hardships, torture or abuse
But let us vision glory after death, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
Fill us with the gifts of knowledge
That we may be wise, and never let anyone
Make us forget the reason of Thy birth, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
What hipocrasy fills the world, here and there
Malls filled with people, merry and bright
But let us just give the good news, as Thou didst!

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem,
Make us lend a hand, a warm heart
To show the love that you were bestowed to show
And make all believe God, as Thou didst!
