Representative Text

1 “Suffer little children
To come unto Me,”
Thus our loving Savior
Spoke in Galilee.
And there gathered ‘round Him
Children weak and small,
‘Twas the same dear Savior
Born in oxen stall.

2 “Suffer little children
To come unto Me,”
All the way from Calv’ry
Comes the Savior’s plea,
Many children hear it,
Harken to His call,
Come to know that Jesus
Loves them best of all.

3 “Suffer little children
To come unto Me,”
Still we hear Him softly
Calling you and me;
if we seek Him early,
Know Him as our own,
Then we’ll someday meet Him
In our heav’nly home.
