The Childhood of Jesus

By the name which Thou didst take,
Suff’ring early for our sake;
Name adored on bended knee,
Name of grace and majesty.

Child of Mary, hear our cry,
Thou wert lowly once as we,
Hear the loving Litany,
We Thy children sing to Thee.

By the joy of Simeon blest,
When he clasped Thee to his breast;
By the widowed Anna’s song,
Pour’d amid the wondering throng.

L. J. Kavanagh and James M. McLaughlin, Crown Hymnal (Boston: Ginn and Company, 1912).
