1. Little children, come away,
From the Savior do not stay:
He is calling us today,
Calling us to Him.

Refrain
Quickly come, gladly come,
From the Savior do not stay;
Quickly come, O gladly come,
He is calling us today.

2. Little children once He blest,
Laid them in His arms to rest;
He of all our friends the best,
Bids us come to Him. [Refrain]

3. Heed His saying, Come to Me;
Happy then we all shall be;
None can give us life but He,
Come, O come to Him. [Refrain]
