37. Jesus Took The Babes And Blessed Them

1 Jesus took the babes and blessed them,
Brought to Him in days of old;
Fondly in His arms caressed them,
Bade them welcome in His fold;
Warmly welcomed, warmly welcomed,
When disciples' hearts were cold.

2 Jesus calls them still with kindness
Passing ev'ry mortal thought;
Bids them come, though human blindness
Still would chide when they are brought;
Takes and blesses, takes and blesses,
Whom He hath so dearly bought.

3 Jesus, we would not forbid them,
We would have them brought to Thee;
Thou of all their guilt dost rid them,
From the curse dost set them free;
Thine dost make them, Thine dost make them,
Thine let them forever be!

Amen.
