Representative Text

1 In heaven and in our hearts He liveth,
The children’s Friend so good and mild;
Each little one He gently leadeth,
And loves each happy, trusting child.
His name is Jesus, Saviour dear,
And when they call, He’s ever near.

2 More tender far than loving mother;
More strong than father kind and true,
This Friend will little children cherish
And comfort them their whole lives through.
His name is Jesus, Saviour dear,
And when they call, He’s ever near.

3 Then take my hand and gently lead me,
Thou Friend of children good and wise,
In ways of peace, in pleasant meadows,
Where streamlets flow ‘neath sunny skies.
And as Thou truly lovest me,
So may I love Thee faithfully.
