1 There is no sweeter story told
In all the blessed Book
Than how the Lord within His arms
The little children took.

“Suffer the children to come unto Me,”
Jesus still speaks it, O parents, to thee;
“Do not forbid them from coming,” said: He—
“Of such is the kingdom of heav’n.”

2 We love Him for the tender touch
That made the leper whole;
And for the wondrous words that healed
The tired, sin-sick soul. [Refrain]

3 But, closer to His loving self
Our human hearts are brought,
When for the little children’s sake,
Love’s sweetest spell is wrought. [Refrain]

4 For their young eyes His sorr’wing face
A smile of gladness wore;
A smile that for His little ones,
It weareth evermore. [Refrain]
