Jesus Loves the Little Ones

Representative Text

1 When in days long passed away,
Jesus walked by Galilee,
Eager listners heard Him say:
“Let the children come to me.”

Jesus loved the little ones,
When He made this world His home;
Still He loves the little ones,
And to Him He bids them come.

2 Now from His exalted place,
Still the Savior kind and mild,
To the kingdom of His grace,
Fain would welcome ev’ry child. [Refrain]

3 Souls of Children glorified,
Sinless lambs in heaven’s fold,
Dwelling where the blest abide,
E’er the Father’s face behold. [Refrain]

4 As they reach His throne above,
Sweetest music to the Lord,
Are the songs of praise and love,
Children sin in glad accord. [Refrain]
