Precious Babe


Who is this baby
Arriving in such a humble way
Coming from a heavenly home
Choosing an earthly life

He is the precious babe
Who came to save

Who is this child
Learning in the temple
Sitting in his Father’s House
Growing in favor and wisdom

He is the precious babe
Who came to save

Who is this man
Working the wood
Learning a craft
Waiting for his time

He is the precious babe
Who came to save

Who is this Jesus
Healing the sick
Teaching in the temple
Speaking the truth

Hanging on the cross
Dying for our sins
Rising from the grave

He is the precious babe
Who came to save
