3815. Little Friends of Jesus

1. We are little children, very young indeed,
But the Savior’s promise each of us may plead.

If we seek Him early, if we come today,
We can be His little friends, He has said we may.

2. Little friends of Jesus, what a happy thought!
Was a precious promise in the Bible taught! [Refrain]

3. Little friends of Jesus, walking by His side,
With His arm around us, every step to guide. [Refrain]

4. We must love Him dearly with a constant love,
Then we’ll go and see Him in our home above. [Refrain]
