Representative Text

1 Jesus loves the children
In all their work and play,
He wants them for His kingdom,
To come to Him today.

Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me,
Jesus wants the children,
His love is full and free.

2 Jesus wants the children
Wherever they may be,
In mansion or in cottage,
On land or on the sea. [Refrain]

3 Jesus wants the children
So weak and prone to stray,
He’ll keep and guide and guard them,
From Satan’s evil sway. [Refrain]
