Are you a Christian, little friend

Representative Text

1 Are you a Christian, little friend?
If not, you ought to be;
For Jesus said of such as you,
"Let children come to Me."
How blessed they who hear the voice
Of God, in childhood's day!
That follow Christ, the Blessed One,
In faith and love alway!

Refrain:
O come, then come;
O why still delay?
The Saviour is calling today,
Come, little one, why still delay?

2 The noblest men the earth has known,
And noblest women, too,
Forsook the world and served the Lord,
When just as young as you.
Full many a soul in heav'n today,
To God was reconciled
By pleading words and earnest tears
From but a little child. [Refrain]

3 And bids He not the youth to come
And tread the heavenly path,
Ere they have heaped iniquity
Against the day of wrath?
Are you a Christian, little friend?
If not, you ought to be;
Christ calls to you with open arms:
"Come, children, unto Me." [Refrain]
