Representative Text

1. Savior, may a little child
In its weakness, come to Thee?
Thou wert ever meek and mild;
Can my heart as gentle be?

Teach me how, teach me how,
By Thy Spirit lead me now;
So my feet will never stray
From Thy fold away.

2. Tho’ my years are only few,
Gladly I would work for Thee;
Is there something I can do?
Can I ever useful be? [Refrain]

3. Oft I wonder when I hear
Older ones that talk of Thee;
What it is Thy yoke to bear,
Wilt Thou give it, Lord, to me? [Refrain]

4. I will give Thee all my heart:
Wilt Thou help me come to Thee?
Kind and loving as Thou art,
Savior, I would like to be. [Refrain]
