The Child Jesus
Giles Fletcher (1586?–1623)
A CHILD He was, and had not learnt to speake,
That with His word the world before did make;
His mother’s armes Him bore, He was so weake,
That with one hand the vaults of heav’n could shake.
See how small roome my infant Lord doth take,        5
Whom all the world is not enough to hold;
Who of His yeares as of His age hath told?
Never such age so young, never a child so old.
