1 The children are coming to Jesus,
They’re turning from sin’s vile way;
They’re seeking the mansions of glory,
They’re bound for that heaven, they say.

Refrain:
We’re coming, dearest Savior,
Coming in youth today;
O, guide us by Thy Spirit,
And lead us all the way.

2 The children are coming to Jesus,
"Salvation," they say, "is free";
’Tis Jesus that tenderly calls them,
Bright gems in His crown to be. [Refrain]

3 The children are coming to Jesus,
With angels to guide their way;
While bright robes in glory are waiting,
For all who will watch and pray. [Refrain]
