1 Blessed Jesus, meek and mild,
Stoop to hear a little child;
At thy feet I come to pray,
Saviour, cast me not away.
2 Take away my load of sin,
Make me clean and pure within;
Teach me all I need to know,
Be my Shepherd here below.
3 In my childhood may I be
Gentle, meek and pure like thee;
Help me ev'ry sin to leave,
Lest thy loving heart I grieve.
4 Tender Jesus, thou didst call
To thine arms the children small;
Lo, I come, and humbly pray,
Saviour, cast me not away.Source: Junior Songs: a collection of sacred hymns and songs; for use in meetings of junior societies, Sunday Schools, etc. #180
