11407. Coming, Yes, We're Coming

1 How sweet the call of mercy,
Inviting every heart
To come and love their Savior,
Ere youthful days depart;
’Tis in the Holy Bible,
These precious words we see:
"Forbid ye not the children,
But let them come to Me."

Coming, yes, we’re coming,
Coming, yes, we’re coming,
Coming, yes, we’re coming,
Dear Savior, to Thy fold.
(repeat softly)

2 O may His Spirit teach us
To know and do the right;
To walk as He commands us,
That we may see the light;
The blessèd light that shineth
Along the narrow way,
And always groweth brighter,
Unto the perfect day. [Refrain]

3 Our Savior loves the children,
On them His hands He laid,
Within His arms He held them,
And blessed them while He prayed;
And still His mercy calls them;
Just now we hear Him say:
"I want your hearts, dear children,
I want your love today." [Refrain]
