Representative Text

1 "Come unto Me!" still thro' the ages falling,
Like heav’nly voices musical and sweet,
The loving Savior tenderly is calling
The children round His feet.

Refrain:
Come unto Me, come unto Me,
Suffer the children to come unto Me.

2 "Forbid them not," but with a prayerful blessing,
Teach them to trust His never failing care;
And feel His dear hands tenderly caressing
Their fair heads bowed in prayer. [Refrain]

3 For such as they the Father’s home in glory
Waits with its joys across the cystal sea;
Then tell them oft the old yet sweet new story,
With patience, tenderly. [Refrain]
