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.

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]
