1 Sweet the lesson Jesus taught,
When to Him fond parents brought,
Babes for whom thy blessing sought,
Little ones like me.

2 Jesus did not answer nay,
Bid them come another day;
Jesus did not turn away
Little ones like me.

3 No, my Saviour’s hand was laid,
Softly on each infant’s head;
Jesus, when He blessed them said,
“Let them come to Me.”

4 Babes may still His blessing share;
Lambs are His peculiar care;
He will in His bosom bear
Little ones like me.
