As a Baby, Jesus Came


As a baby, Jesus came
From His home above
He left His throne, and who He was,
To teach us how to love

As a baby, Jesus came,
Wrapped in swaddling cloth;
Willingly took on humanity,
Though He was one with God.

As a baby, Jesus came
To one day grow to be
The saviour of the human race,
People like you and me.

As a baby, Jesus came
As God's eternal light
That will never be extinguished,
But forever shine out bright.

As a baby, Jesus came
The hope of eternal life,
Reconciling us back to God,
Giving meaning to our lives.

As a man, Jesus died,
His blood poured out for all,
Cleansing and forgiving us,
For to this, He was called.
We thank Him that He came a babe
And grew to be a man
And for His sacrificial love,
His nailed scarred feet and hands.

Through it all we can live on
With Jesus Christ our Lord
The babe that came that first Christmas
Is what we thank Him for.
