KNOW’ST thou, my child, that lowly One
Who came to do God's will—
Jesus, who left the throne above
His purpose to fulfill?
Jesus, who carne as Light and Love
To make His Father known;
He bore the judgment due to thee—
He bore it all alone!
He had a secret, dear to Him,
Which no one else could tell—
The secret of His Father's love,
Which He knew, oh, so well!
From all eternity the Son
His Father's thoughts had shar'd,
And He knew all the plans that love
And mercy had prepar'd,—
Mercy for little ones like thee—
High, as the Heav'us above;
Eternal Life e'en in Himself,
In boundless, endless Love!
