1 Jesus, friend of little children,
let me be one too;
take my hand, and ever keep me
close to you.
2 Teach me how to grow in goodness,
daily as I grow.
You have been a child, and surely
you must know.
3 Never leave me, nor forsake me;
ever be my friend;
for I need you, from life's dawning
to its end.
