Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Jesus Loves the Little Children

Full Text

1 Jesus calls the children dear,
"Come to Me and never fear,
For I love the little children of the world;
I will take you by the hand,
Lead you to the better land,
For I love the little children of the world."

Chorus:
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

2 Jesus is the Shepherd true,
And He’ll always stand by you,
For He loves the little children of the world;
He’s a Saviour great and strong,
And He’ll shield you from the wrong,
For He loves the little children of the world. [Chorus]

3 I am coming, Lord, to Thee,
And Thy soldier I will be,
For He loves the little children of the world;
And His cross I’ll always bear,
And for Him I’ll do and dare,
For He love the little children of the world. [Chorus]
