Quote #4

He is meek & he is mild,
He became a little child: (lines 15-16)

The child doesn't mention any of the important events from the life of Christ, like his teachings, his death, and his struggles against the local religious orthodoxy. Instead, he naively focuses on the similarities between Jesus and himself: they were both kids!
