Jesus, joy of the highest heaven

born as a little baby under a wondrous star.
Like us, crying he takes his first breath,
held by his mother, helpless, close to her beating heart.
Jesus, laid in a lowly manger,
facing a world of dangers,
come to turn me, a stranger,
into a child of God.

2 Jesus, King of the highest heaven,
learning to take his first steps, that he might bring us life.
Like us, knowing our smiles and sorrows,
he showed the way to follow, a way that is true and right.
Jesus, take away every darkness,
steady my simple footsteps
that I might, in your goodness,
live as a child of God.
