156. There is a Friend for children

1 There is a Friend for children,
Above the bright blue sky,
A Friend who never changes,
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.

2 There is a rest for children,
Above the bright blue sky,
Who love the blessed Saviour,
And to the Father cry,--
A rest from every trouble,
From sin and danger free;
There every little pilgrim
Shall rest eternally.

3 There is a home for 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 every one is happy,
Nor can be happier there.

4 And there are crowns for children
Above the bright blue sky,
And all who look to Jesus
Shall wear them by-and-by;
Yea, crowns of brightest glory,
Which He shall sure bestow,
On all who loved the Saviour
And walked with Him below.

5 And there are songs for children
Above the bright blue sky,
And harps of sweetest music
For hymns of victory;
And all above is pleasure,
And found in Christ alone;
Lord, grant Thy little children
To know Thee as their own.
