1 The sweetest words I have ever read
Are the loving words that the Savior said:
"Suffer the children to come to Me."
Who’d have ever thought of this but He?

Refrain:
"Suffer the children to come to Me,
Suffer the children to come to Me";
I am as glad as glad can be,
Those very words were meant for me.

2 Oh, how He parted the throng that pressed,
And so tenderly every child caressed!
This is the gladness of all my song,
That to this dear Savior I belong. [Refrain]

3 I wonder what I should ever do,
If the Savior had only called a few,
Taking the old, and the wise and great;
Oh, I am so glad I need not wait. [Refrain]
