1 Seeking the Master in faith and love,
Bring the children to Jesus;
No other friend like the Friend above,
Bring the children to Jesus.

Refrain:
Bring them to Jesus whose grace is free,
Bring them to Jesus, His treasures to be;
Bring them for time and eternity,
Bring the children to Jesus.

2 “Suffer the children,” He once did say,
Bring the children to Jesus;
He is the Life and the Truth, the way,
Bring the children to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Bring them by teaching and earnest prayer,
Bring the children to Jesus;
Bring them by loving and faithful care,
Bring the children to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Bring them for shelter from worldly harms,
Bring the children to Jesus;
Safety from sin in the Saviour’s arms,
Bring the children to Jesus. [Refrain]

5 Bring them to render Him sweetest praise,
Bring the children to Jesus;
Growing in grace as they grow in days,
Bring the children to Jesus. [Refrain]
