Words by Claire Cloninger; Music by Dawn Rodgers and Eric Wyse; Arrangement by Mark Hayes

Come as a child to adore Him,
Bow with the sheperds before Him.
Welcome the babe in the manger again,
Come as a child to Bethlehem.

Come as his children of glory,
Come be a part of His story,
Lift ev'ry hope in your heart to Him,
Come as a child to Bethlehem.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay;
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a sheperd, I would bring a lamb.
If I were a wise man I would do my part.
Yet what can I give Him? But give Him my heart.

Come adore Him, bow before Him.
Welcome Jesus, come to Bethlehem.
