30. Forbid Them Not

1 Our Saviour dear, when He was here
Did little children call;
A little child, gentle and mild,
He placed before them all.

Forbid them not, Forbid them not,
O hear the Saviour say:
Forbid them not to come to me,
The light, the life, the way.

2 And now on high, above the sky,
He loves the children yet;
We cannot stay so far away,
That He will us forget. [Refrain]

3 And while we live, we’ll strive to give
To Him our heart’s best love;
And hope at last, when life is past,
To dwell with Him above. [Refrain]
