1 There are dear little children far over the sea,
That are cunning and cute and as sweet as can be,
Yet some never heard of the Jesus we love,
And have not a thought of the Father above.
O what can we do to help send them the word?
To tell them of Jesus, our Saviour and Lord;
We can give of our pennies, our nickels and dimes,
We can take them in pray’r to Him numberless times,
For although they may live far away o’er the sea,
Jesus loves ev’ry one as He does you and me.
2 There are Eskimo babies, that live where ‘tis cold,
There are Japanese children with skin like pure gold,
Then African, Indian and Chinese babes too
Must learn to love Jesus as you and I do. [Refrain]
3 Let us always remember that Jesus, God’s Son,
Has a place in His heart for each wee little one,
And nothing will please the dear Father above
Like showing the world-children proof of our love. [Refrain]
