Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Jesus called the children
Saying, “Come to Me”
In His arms He took them,
O, so tenderly;
Said unto His dear ones
Be ye like a child—
Enter heaven’s kingdom undefiled.
‘Tis the blood of Jesus,
Cleanseth from all sin,
Makes us pure and spotless,
Clean without, within;
Come and learn of Jesus,
He will lead the way,
Be your loving helper ev’ry day.
2 Jesus took the children,
Close into His arms
Laid His hand upon them,
Sooth’d them from alarms,
Gave to them His blessing,
Fraught with love divine;
Jesus make me now a child of Thine. [Refrain]
3 Jesus, dearest Jesus,
Watching from on high,
Noting ev’ry sorrow,
Hearing ev’ry sigh,
Giving sweetest comfort,
Calling, “Come to Me,
In my arms I’ll bear Thee tenderly.” [Refrain]Source: The King of Glory #190
