The little ones' offering

Representative Text

1. Little hands that never yet have learned to sin,
Little feet that enter ev'ry race to win,
Little hearts with only room for Christ within,
These the Master loves to find.

We will come and bow before the Saviour
Ere he need repeat his call,
Laying on the altar of salvation
Life and love and all.

2. Little eyes that look above to find the light,
Little ears that listen only to the right,
Little lips that love to speak of Jesus' might,
These the Master loves to find. [Chorus]
