12281. Let The Little Children Come

1 Let the little children come,
And forbid them not the right,
As they journey on their way,
Guided by the Savior’s light.

Hear the voice of Jesus say,
Let the little children come;
I will guide you on the way,
I will safely lead you home.

2 Children, listen to the call,
And obey the Lord’s command,
Come and go with Him today,
He will take you by the hand. [Refrain]

3 In your childhood turn away
From the paths that lead to sin;
Love the Savior every day,
He will surely take you in. [Refrain]
