O Lord, the Holy Innocents

Christian Hymn Lyrics Online
© 2008 Carden's Design. All Rights Reserved.
O Lord, the holy innocents
Laid down for Thee their infant life,
And martyrs brave and patient saints
Have stood for Thee in fire and strife.

We wear the cross they wore of old
Our lips have learned like vows to make;
We need not die; we cannot fight;
What may we do for Jesusí sake?

O day by day each Christian child
Has much to do, without, within;
A death to die for Jesusí sake,
A weary war to wage with sin.

When deep within our swelling hearts
The thoughts of pride and anger rise,
When bitter words are on our tongues,
And tears of passion in our eyes.

Then we may stay the angry blow,
Then we may check the hasty word,
Give gentle answers back again,
And fight a battle for our Lord.

With smiles of peace and looks of love,
Light in our dwellings we may make,
Bid kind good humor brighten there,
And still do all for Jesusí sake.

Thereís not a child so weak and small
But has his little cross to take,
His little work of love and praise,
That he may do for Jesusí sake.
