1 Jesus is the children’s friend,
Bless His holy name;
And their cause He will defend,
O praise His holy name.

The children’s friend is He,
The children’s friend is He;
Their constant guide
Whate’er betide,
The children’s friend is He.

Bless His holy name;
Many blessings He doth send,
O praise His holy name. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is the children’s friend,
Bless His holy name;
Praises to Him now ascend,
O praise His holy name. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is the children’s friend,
Bless His holy name;
Angel voices with ours blend,
To praise His only name. [Refrain]
