Representative Text

1 Jesus is the children’s Friend,
Oh, children come to Jesus;
From all ills he will defend,
Oh, children come to Jesus.

Refrain:
Oh, come and bow before him,
And joyfully adore him,
Glad tribute bring to Christ, our King,
Our Friend and Helper, Jesus.

2 Jesus loves each little child,
Oh, children come to Jesus;
He is tender, meek and mild,
Oh, children come to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Jesus turns no one away,
Oh, children come to Jesus;
He still loves us though we stray,
Oh, children come to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Jesus bids the children come,
Oh, children come to Jesus;
He will lead us safely home,
Oh, children come to Jesus. [Refrain]
