Dear little One how sweet Thou art




Dear little One!
how sweet Thou art,
Thine eyes so bright they shine,
So bright they almost seem to speak
When Maryís looks meet Thine.
How faint and feeble is Thy cry,
Like plaint of harmless dove,
When Thou dost murmur in Thy sleep
Of sorrow and of love.

Dear little One! how sweet Thou art,
Thine eyes so bright they shine,
So bright they almost seem to speak
When Maryís looks meet Thine.



When Mary bids Thee
sleep Thou sleepíst,
Thou wakest when she calls;
Thou art content upon her lap,
Or in the rugged stalls.
Simplest of Babes! with what a grace,
Thou dost Thy motherís will,
Thine infant fashions all betray
The Godheadís hidden skill.

Dear little One! how sweet Thou art,
Thine eyes so bright they shine,
So bright they almost seem to speak
When Maryís looks meet Thine.



When Joseph takes Thee
in his arms,
And smoothes Thy little cheek,
Thou lookest up into his face
So helpless and so meek.
Yes! Thou art what
Thou seemíst to be,
A thing of smiles and tears;
Yet Thou art God,
and Heavín and earth
Adore Thee with their fears.

Dear little One! how sweet Thou art,
Thine eyes so bright they shine,
So bright they almost seem to speak
When Maryís looks meet Thine.
