God’s Son came to earth as a baby,
He lived here a long time ago.
He loved His mother and father,
Who taught Him the way to go.
He grew in obedience and wisdom,
A beautiful child without sin.
He was always happy and cheerful,
God’s Spirit was present in Him.
As a man He was tempted by Satan,
Forty days in the desert He prayed.
While thirsty and weakened by hunger,
True to God’s Word He stayed.
In the Bible are stories of Jesus,
How He went about doing good.
He loved the poor and disabled,
And taught folks to live how they should.
He loved little children and sinners,
He healed the sick and the blind.
He taught us that God has promised
To make pure our heart and our mind.
Hated by proud and hard-hearted
Because He showed up their sins,
They tortured and brutally killed Him,
But the battle with Satan He wins.
In a rich man’s tomb He was buried,
On the Sabbath He rested and slept,
But an angel from heaven awakened Him,
In the tomb He couldn’t be kept.
Back to heaven He went up slowly,
“Be back soon in glory,” He said,
“To take back My children who love Me,
And raise up the righteous dead.”
God sent His only Son, Jesus,
That those who believe in His love
Will live with His family forever
In the heavenly mansions above.
