        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.
