Representative Text

1 We are little children,
Very young indeed,
But the Saviour's promise,
Each of us may plead.

Refrain:
If we seek Him early,
If we come today,
We can be his little friends;
He has said we may.

2 Little friends of Jesus,
What a happy tho't!
What a precious promise,
In the Bible taught. [Refrain]

3 Little friends of Jesus,
Walking by His side,
With His arm around us,
Every step to guide. [Refrain]

4 We must love Him dearly,
With a constant love,
Then we'll go and see Him,
In our homes above. [Refrain]
