O Jesus, we are well and strong

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, we are well and string,
And we can run about and play;
But there are children who are sick,
And have to lie in bed all day.

2 We thank Thee for our health and strength;
And, loving Lord, we pray Thee bless
The children who are weak and ill
And suffer pain and loneliness.
