    Jesus, who lived above the sky,
    Came down to be a man and die;
    And in the Bible we may see
    How very good He used to be.


    He went about—He was so kind—
    To cure poor people who were blind;
    And many who were sick and lame,
    He pitied them and did the same.


    And more than that,
    He told them too,
    The things that God would
    have them do;
    And was so gentle and mild,
    He would have listened to a child.


    But such a cruel death He died!
    He was hung up and crucified;
    And those kind hands
    that did such good,
    They nailed them to a cross of wood.


    And so He died—and this is why
    He came to be a man and die;
    The Bible says He came from heaven,
    That we might have our sins forgiven.
