1 There's a message of love
Come down from above
To invite little children to heav'n'
In God's blessed book
Poor sinners may look,
And see how all sin is forgiv'n.

2 For there they may read
How Jesus did bleed,
His life everlasting to give;
He cleanseth the soul,
He maketh us whole,
That with Him in heav'n we may live.

3 And then, when they die,
He takes them on high
To be with Him in heaven above;
For so kind is His heart
That He never will part
From a child that has tasted His love.

4 And O what delight
In heaven so bright
When they see the dear Saviour's face;
On His beauty to gaze,
And sing to His praise,
And rejoice in His own boundless grace.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

Tune

SWEET STORY

This is very similar to SALAMIS (12323), but the contour of the melody is strikingly different in the second phrase.
