3636. Let Little Children Come to Me

1. Let little children come to Me,
So says our blessèd Lord;
And I, a little child, must be
Obedient to His Word;
On Sabbath days must sing His praise,
And bow before Him, for He says,
Let little children come to Me,
Let little children come.

2. Let little children come to Me,
It is my Savior’s call;
He spake it not to two or three,
But to the children all;
And so, when they His law obey,
It is as if they heard Him say,
Let little children come to Me,
Let little children come.

3. Let little children come to Me,
O Father, Lord, I come;
Through life and death I’ll go with Thee,
Thine arms shall be my home.
I cannot fear when Thou art near;
And Thy sweet words I seem to hear,
Let little children come to Me,
Let little children come.
