151c. Of Such is the Kingdom

1 I will pray and never fear,—
Children to our Lord are dear.
He was once a little child,
Oh, how gentle, meek and mild!

2 If like Jesus I would be,
He will help and comfort me.
Mothers brought the children near,
All his blessed words to hear.

3 Never were they sent away;
Welcome ever, day by day;
Sweet the reason that was given,
Childlike hearts are close to heaven.

4 In his presence if I dwell,
All is peace and all is well.
What I need, his love can give;
He will show me how to live.
