Representative Text

1 Loving Redeemer, behold us today,
Here we are gather’d to sing and to pray;
Learning the words that are spoken by Thee,
“Suffer the children to come unto me.”

Refrain:
Come unto me, O come unto me,
Come, children, come unto me;
Sweet are the words that are spoken by Thee,
“Suffer the children to come unto me.”

2 Lord, we are happy because we believe,
Thou art so willing our hearts to receive;
Never forgotten Thy sweet words will be,
“Suffer the children to come unto me.” [Refrain]

3 We are so thankful for all Thou dost give,
Now for Thy glory we children would live;
Ever remembered and treasured will be,
“Suffer the children to come unto me.” [Refrain]

4 When we have finished our journey below,
When from the world Thou shalt call us to go,
Then Thou wilt say, as Thy face we shall see,
“Suffer the children to come unto me.” [Refrain]
