1 In that precious Book, the Bible,
We may read the story sweet;
How the Lord, our gentle Saviour,
Called the children to His feet.

Refrain:
‘Tis so sweet to know that Jesus
Loves the little children still!
He will make us very happy,
If we try to do His will.

2 How He took them up and blest them,
Held them in His arms so dear;
Spoke to them in words of patience,
Full of sweetness, full of cheer! [Refrain]

3 Now today, we cannot see Him,
But He’s with us all the while;
If we truly try to please Him,
If we seek to have His smile. [Refrain]

4 Kindly He is watching o’er us,
He will hear us, when we pray;
Let us think of Him with gladness,
And His holy Book obey. [Refrain]
