1 We are little children,
Ever bright and gay;
We will work for Jesus
All the live-long day.

Yes, we’ll work, work, work,
And our duty never shirk,
We will work, we will work for Jesus.

2 We will learn our lessons
Ev’ry day in school;
We’ll obey our teachers,
Never break a rule. [Refrain]

3 We’ll obey our parents,
And do all they ask;
‘Twill be all for Jesus,
And a loving task. [Refrain]
