Representative Text

1 Jesus loves the children dear,
Them He blessed when He was here,
And He never turned the little ones away;
But “Forbid them not,” said He;
“Let the children come to Me,”
For as Savior He’s the Life, the Truth, the Way.

Chorus:
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world,
Brown and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in his sight;
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

2 ‘Twas for them that Jesus died,
On the cross was crucified,
Shed His blood to wash their many sins away;
Now whoever will believe,
Life eternal shall receive,
And He’ll keep them in His care from day to day. [Chorus]

3 Many thousands die each day,
In the countries far away,
Who have never heard of Jesus and His love;
let us pray, and give, and go,
That these little ones may know
Of salvation and the joys of heav’n above. [Chorus]

4 Let us tell the story o’er
Till it reaches ev’ry shore,
And the Gospel has been heard in ev’ry land;
Till in ev’ry tribe and tongue
Our Redeemer’s praise is sung,
Oh, the great redemption chorus ‘twill be grand! [Chorus]
