1 Jesus loves the little children,
Knows about their work and play,
Helps them when they try to please him,
Hears them always when they pray.
Happy, happy little children,
Jesus hears them when they pray.

2 Jesus thinks about the children
All the nights and all the days;
Leads the little feet that follow
Into wisdom’s pleasant ways.
Happy, happy little children,
Led in wisdom’s pleasant ways!

3 He will keep the, when they ask him,
Always patient, true and mild;
Jesus knows about their troubles,
He was once a little child.
Blessed, happy little children,
He was once a little child.

4 By and by, for those who love him,
He will come, some happy day,—
Lead them to the pleasant pastures
Of the land not far away.
Oh, the safe and happy children,
In the land not far away.

Knowlton, H. 0. Duffield notes under her hymn, "I cannot tell if short or long" (Trust), in Laudes Domini, 1884, that "Miss Knowlton was a school-girl in Illinois at the time of its composition. Professor W. F. Sherwin received it from her through the good offices of one of her teachers, a mutual friend " (English Hymns, 1886, p. 238). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
