Jesus Loves the Children

Jesus loves the children For He said one day

Author: Anonymous
Tune: [Alle Jahre wieder] (Rinck)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Jesus loves the children
For He said one day,
"Let the children come to me;
Keep them not away."

2 There are many children
Who have never heard
Of His love and tender care,
Of His holy Word.

3 I will help these children
Learn of Jesus' love
So that He may welcome them
To His Home above.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
