Representative Text

1 Let the children come unto me,
Once on earth the Saviour said,
Then upon them, with a blessing,
Hands divine were gently laid.
Come to Jesus, little children,
Youthful pilgrims, come to-day.

2 Still that voice of gentle kindness
Calls away from earth, to sin,
Let the children early seeking,
Serve him now--to-day begin;
Come to Jesus, little children,
Youthful pilgrims, come to-day.

3 Suffer them and not forbid them,
They my Father's blessing share!
Thus he speaks,--"Theirs too the kingdom,"
Train them with a pious care;
Come to Jesus, little children,
Youthful pilgrims, come to-day.
