Representative Text

1 Jesus loves little children,
He is their Friend;
His aid He will lend;
Like a shepherd He’ll lead them;
Come to Him, children, today.

Refrain:
Children may come,
Children may come,
Children may come to the Saviour,
Children may come,
Children may come,
Children may come and be saved.

2 Jesus now doth entreat you,
List to His voice,
Oh, hear and rejoice;
He is ready to meet you;
Little ones, turn not away. [Refrain]

3 Jesus now doth command you;
Do not delay;
Oh, haste and obey;
Dangers dark will surround you
If from your Saviour you stray. [Refrain]
