Tune: TWO LITTLE HANDS
Published in 7 hymnals

Full Text

1 Two little hands to work for Jesus,
One little tongue His praise to tell,
Two little ears to hear His counsel,
One little voice a song to swell.

Refrain:
Lord, we come, Lord, we come,
In our childhood’s early morning;
Lord, we come, Lord, we come,
Come to learn of Thee.

2 Two little feet to tread the pathway,
Up to the heav’nly courts above;
Two little eyes to read the Bible,
Telling of Jesus’ wondrous love. [Refrain]

3 One little heart to give to Jesus,
One little soul for Him to save,
One little life for His dear service,
One little self that He must have. [Refrain]
