Little Child

Music from the New Era

1. Softness, silence,
Quiet lies the scene before.
Infant and Virgin in tender stillness lay.
Silence, softness,
’Mid the angels who adore.
Little Child, Holy One,
A world He comes to save.


2. Stable humble,
Savior in a fodder stall.
Christ Child, the Son of God, a promise to fulfill.
Quiet, tender,
All creation stands in awe.
Little Child, Holy One,
Who comes at Father’s will.

How can I honor thee,
Precious Little Child?
How can I come to thee,
Someone such as I?


3. Softness, silence,
Quiet lies the scene I see.
Starlight, shepherds, the place is rev’rent still.
Savior, Redeemer,
Oh, what’s required of me?
Is it just to come as the Little Child and do the Father’s will?
