The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Oh! Dear Jesus

Authorship Unknown

Early Italian

Thou camest from heav'n we are told,
To keep God's promise made of old,
His will was redeem'd at Thy birth
Thus we all welcome Thee to earth.

Oh! dear Jesus, sweet angelic child,
Oh! dear Jesus, precious Saviour mine,
Oh! dear Jesus, Oh! dear Jesus,
Keep my love,
it is ever Thine.

Thy pilgrimage through starry skies,
We greet with hosannas loud rise!
God's love made manifest to men,
For God His only Son hath giv'n.
