Representative Text

1 The children to Jesus may come
And life and salvation receive;
New hearts will he give ev'ry one,
If on him they only believe.

I will love him, I will love him,
For his child I want to be;
On the cross he died for sinners,
On the cross he died for me.

2 My name will he write in his book,
And call me a lamb of his fold;
When Satan shall seek to devour,
Then me in his hands will he hold. [Chorus]

3 I read in his own blessed word
How little ones useful may be.
I'll stand with my face to the cross,
That others the Saviour may see. [Chorus]
