1 You have heard the blessed story of the children’s truest Friend,
He who took them in His arms while here below;
He has bro’t you many blessings, He has given you a home;
Hasten, tell it, letting other children know.

Refrain:
Let other children know,
Let other children know
About the blessed, loving Jesus;
Tell them of His tender love,
Of His home in heav’n above,
O let other children know about Jesus.

2 Tell them He was born in poverty, and in a manger lay;
How He came to earth because He loved us so;
How He went about and healed the sick, the deaf, the blind, the lame;
Hasten, tell it, letting other children know. [Refrain]

3 Tell them how He suffered on the cross in shame for you and me,
All to save our souls from sin and endless woe;
How He died but rose again to be our best and dearest friend;
Hasten, tell it, letting other children know. [Refrain]
