Full Text

1 There's nothing sweeter than the thought,
That I may see the Lord,
If I but seek him as I ought,
And love his work and word.

Refrain:
I'd rather be the least of them
That are the Lord's alone,
Than wear a royal diadem,
And sit upon a throne.

2 Once in his arms the Saviour took
Young children just like me,
And blessed them with a voice and look,
As kind as kind could be. [Refrain]

I'd rather be the least of them
That shared that look and tone,
Than wear a royal diadem,
And sit upon a throne. [Refrain]

3 And though to heaven the Lord hath gone,
And seems so far away,
He hath a smile for every one
That doth his voice obey. [Refrain]

I'd rather be the least of them
That he will bless and own,
Than wear a royal diadem,
And sit upon a throne. [Refrain]
