Full Text

1 Gently Jesus calls,
Children come to me;
Oh, so gently falls,
Mercy’s tender plea.

Refrain:
Come, children, come,
Jesus saves today;
Come, children, come
To him while you may.

2 Plainly Jesus calls,
Children come to me;
Out from prison walls,
Into liberty. [Refrain]

3 Ever Jesus calls,
Children come to me;
Soon the death-time falls,
Lost he out may be. [Refrain]

4 Earnest Jesus calls,
Children come to me;
Ever now he calls,
Take his mercy free. [Refrain]

5 Jesus loving calls,
Children come to me;
Is to great and small,
Is to you and me. [Refrain]
