Sweet Jesus

An old German carol, harmonized by Bach
Hear it sung (may take a minute)

O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild,
The Father's will done by a child;
From heaven you came down to the earth,
and gave yourself a human birth
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild.

O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild,
You turned your Father's anger wild;
You paid the debt of all our race,
bestowed on us your Father's grace,
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild.

O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild,
Love's beauty found in this small child;
Inspire us with your love's bright flame,
So we all may love you the same,
O Jesus so sweet, O Jesus so mild.
