Jesus the children's Friend

Representative Text

1 I wonder who is the children's friend?
Jesus is! Jesus is!
Who will love them to the end?
Jesus, only Jesus.

Chorus:
Tell, oh, tell of Jesus' praise!
Loud and clear your voices raise!
Up to him our songs ascend,
Jesus is our friend.

2 Who came from heaven for us to die?
Jesus did! Jesus did!
Who was lifted up on high?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Chorus]

3 O who was crucified for sin?
Jesus was! Jesus was!
Who for us did heaven win?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Chorus]

4 And who will love us while life shall last?
Jesus will! Jesus will!
Who will take us home at last?
Jesus, only Jesus. [Chorus]
