1. Gentle Jesus, pure and fair,

Hope of nations lying there,

God who loves all souls on earth

Sent the gift of greatest worth.

He who slept in lowly stall

Had come to save us all.

2. Gentle Jesus walked the land.

Dead men rose at His command.

As He taught the wonder of

Heaven’s pure and healing love.

He with pow’r o’er earth and seas

Taught men to live in peace.

3. Gentle Jesus cared so much

He laid down His life for us.

He alone had pow’r enough

To redeem us by His love.

He who willingly forgave

Went down into the grave.

4. Gentle Jesus rose again

As our great eternal friend.

Oh, what joy this message gives;

Jesus Christ, our Savior lives.

He whose mission was divine

Brought hope to all mankind.

5. Gentle Jesus, come again.

Cleanse the world of pain and sin

Come with majesty and love

From the sacred courts above.

Gentle Jesus, come again

And heal the hearts of men.
