170. Jesus, Son of God most high

Part 1:
1 Jesus, Son of God most high,
Who didst in a manger lie,
Who upon the Cross didst die:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

2 Jesus, once an infant small,
Cradled in the oxen's stall
Though the God and Lord of all:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Part 2:
3 May we prize our Christian name,
May we guard it free from blame,
Hating all that causes shame:
Hear us holy, Jesus.

4 May we grow from day to day,
Glad to learn each holy way,
Ever ready to obey:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

5 May our thoughts be undefiled,
May our words be true and mild,
Make us each a holy child:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

Part 3:
6 When we lie asleep at night,
Ever may Thy angels bright
Keep us safe till morning light:
Hear us, holy Jesus.

7 Jesus, from Thy heavenly throne
Watching o'er each little one
Till our life on earth is done:
Hear us, holy Jesus.
