Representative Text

1 Jesus, hear a little child;
May I be
Kind and gentle, meek and mild,
More like Thee!

2 Saviour, ever be my guide
All the way!
Keep me, Saviour, at Thy side
Ev’ry day.

3 Hold me by Thy loving hand,
Jesus dear!
Close to Thee I love to stand,
Oh, so near!

4 I’m Thy loving little lamb,
Shepherd, Thou!
Though so small and weak I am
Hear me now!
