Julia. Who came from heaven to bleed and die?
Alice. Jesus, the Son of God Most High.
Julia. But why did Jesus suffer thus?
Alice. He suffer'd, bled and died for us.
Julia. Were our sins then on Jesus laid?
Alice. They were; he bore them in our stead.
Julia. Will God forgive what we have done?
Alice. Yes, if we ask through Christ, his Son.
Julia. But will he hear what children say?
Alice. He will, if with our hearts we pray.
Julia. Will Jesus help us if we try?
Alice. He'll send the Spirit from on high.
Julia. What will the holy Spirit do?
Alice. Teach us to pray--our hearts renew.
Julia. Is Jesus still the children's friend?
Alice. His love to children knows no end.
Julia. Does Jesus still the children bless?
Alice. He does, with truest happiness.
Julia. And may we all to Jesus come?
Alice. Yes, in his heart there yet is room.
Julia. O should we not this Saviour love?
Alice. All other friends far, far above.
Julia. And surely we should praise him too.
Alice. Yes, and I'll gladly join with you;
He loves to hear our youthful tongues
Pour forth in praise our grateful songs.
How pleasant now for us to sing
The love and goodness of our King.
Both. Jesus, the Lord, let us adore,
And love and praise him evermore.
Glory to Jesus Christ be given,
By all on earth, by all in heaven.
