Author: T. Hastings Hymnal: Christ in Song #417 (1908) Hymnal Title: Christ in Song First Line: Forbid them not, the Saviour cried Lyrics: 1 "Forbid them not," the Saviour cried,
"But suffer them to come;"
Ah, then maternal tears were dried,
And unbelief was dumb.
2 Lord, we believe, and we obey;
We bring them at thy word;
Be thou our children's strength and stay,
Their portion and reward.
3 Let not earth's pleasures draw them down;
Lord, give them strength to rise,
And thro' thy strong, attractive pow'r,
At last to gain the prize. Topics: Save the Children; Invitation and Repentance Save the Children Tune Title: PEORIA
