1. Gentle Jesus, meek and mild, Look upon a little child, Pity my simplicity, Suffer me to come to thee.

2. Lamb of God, I look to thee, Thou shalt my example be; Thou art gentle, meek and mild; Thou wast once a little child.

3. Lord, I would be as Thou art; Give me an obedient heart; Thou art merciful and kind, Let me have Thy loving mind.

4. Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb, In Thy gracious hands I am; Make me, Savior, what Thou art, Live Thyself within my heart.

5. I shall then show forth thy praise, Serve thee all my happy days; Then the world shall always see Christ, the holy child, in me.

6. Fain I would to thee be brought, Gracious Lord, forbid it not; In the Kingdom of thy grace Give a little child a place.
