Representative Text

1 In the early spring-time,
When your leaves are fair,
Little buds of promise,
Little blossoms rare;
Hear the words of Jesus,
Precious will they be,
Bring the little children,
Let them come to Me.

Chorus:
Let them come to Me,
Let them come to Me,
Bring the little children,
Let them come to Me.

2 Let them come in welcome
To My bleeding side,
To secure their pardon
I was crucified:
They may be forgiven,
From the law set free,
I, the Lord, have risen,
Let them come to Me. [Chorus]

3 Jesus, we are coming
To Thy loving arms,
Safely there reposing,
Sin no longer harms.
From the wiles of Satan
Thou canst set us free,
Though we're little children,
We will come to Thee. [Chorus]
