175. There’s a Friend for Little Children

1 There’s a Friend for little children
Above the bright blue sky;
A Friend who never changeth,
Whose love will never die;
Unlike our friends by nature,
Who change with changing years,
This Friend is always worthy
The precious name He bears.

Refrain:
This Friend for little children
Came down on earth to die,
That all who truly love Him,
Might live with Him on high.

2 There’s a rest for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
For those who love the Saviour,
And “Abba” Father cry:
A rest from every trouble,
From sin and danger free,
Where every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally. [Refrain]

3 There’s a home for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
A home of peace and joy:
No home on earth is like it,
Nor can with it compare,
For everyone is happy
Nor could be happier there. [Refrain]

4 There’s a crown for little children
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who look to Jesus
Shall wear it by and by:
A crown of brightest glory,
Which He will then bestow
On those who found His favor
And loved Him here below. [Refrain]
