The People Came from Everywhere

Author: Mary Nelson Keithahn Hymnal: CAWM #7 (1998) Meter: 8.6.8.6 D Person Name: Mary Nelson Keithahn Lyrics: The people came from everywhere to hear the Teacher's news. The blind, the lame, the poor were there, encouraged by his views. But those who brought the children near were quickly sent away: “The Teacher's far too busy now. Don't bother him today. When Jesus saw the children turn, their faces long and glum, he told his friends, "When will you learn that little ones must come?" He chided them indignantly, "God's love can't be denied! Let all the children come to me and sit here at my side." "The holy realm of God belongs to children such as these, who trust that God will right all wrongs, forgive, and bring us peace. If you would also now receive the love that never ends, come as a trusting child, believe in all that God intends." As once you took your hands and blessed the children on their way, now bless us, Jesus, in our quest to find your love, we pray. We long to feel your warm embrace, and hear your kindly word, that in the presence of your grace our faith might be assured.
