1 Above earth’s din and turmoil
The Christmas music rings,
And back to heaven’s portals
The angel chorus wings.

Refrain:
And in that joyous choral
The children’s notes must blend,
For Jesus came to bless them,
He is the children’s Friend.

2 A Babe of lowly advent,
A well beloved Son,
He knows the needs of children,
He loves each little one. [Refrain]

3 A life sublime, unselfish,
A life of love He knew,
That He might be our pattern,
Might be the children’s too. [Refrain]
