1 Jesus is the friend of children,
Jesus is the friend of children,
Jesus is the friend of children,
We praise Him for His love;
He will lead us home to glory,
He will lead us home to glory,
He will lead us home to glory,
His own bright home above.

2 Jesus is our faithful teacher,
Jesus is our faithful teacher,
Jesus is our faithful teacher,
We praise Him for His word;
We will heed His loving counsel,
We will heed His loving counsel,
We will heed His loving counsel,
The counsel of the Lord.

3 Jesus suffered to redeem us,
Jesus suffered to redeem us,
Jesus suffered to redeem us,
We praise Him for His cross;
All the charms that sin can offer,
All the charms that sin can offer,
All the charms that sin can offer,
For Him we count but loss.

4 Jesus pleads for us in Heaven,
Jesus pleads for us in Heaven,
Jesus pleads for us in Heaven,
We praise Him for His plea;
Faithful advocate, we’ll praise Him,
Faithful advocate, we’ll praise Him,
Faithful advocate, we’ll praise Him,
Through all eternity.
