Representative Text

1 Little children, live for Jesus;
You can serve Him if you try;
He will give you life eternal
In the sweet home by and by;

If you try; if you try;
You can serve Him of you try;
Ev’ry burden Jesus gives you,
You can carry if you try.

2 Little children, lambs of Jesus,
How He loves you, none can tell;
They who sweetly follow Jesus,
In His own dear home shall dwell; [Refrain]

3 Little children, live for Jesus;
Do not fear to speak His name,
Speak it gently, speak it bravely;
Tell how once thy Saviour came; [Refrain]
