As a Little Child

Representative Text

1 Thine anxious doubts and fears,
Tireed heart, forget them all
And, even as a little child,
Come at the Saviour's call.

Come as a little child
Comes to the mother's breast;
Come as a little child,
To Jesus come and rest.

2 Don't try to understand
Salvation's wondrous scheme;
but simply trust the mighty love
That suffered to redeem. [Refrain]

3 Oh, is not this enough,
To know that Jesus died
To pay for you the debt of sin,
And calls you to His side? [Refrain]

4 Come as a little child
In simple, trusting love;
True, thou art weak, but He is strong
And ruleth all above. [Refrain]
