1034. Little Ones Like Me

1 Jesus, when He left the sky,
And for sinners came to die,
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

Refrain 1:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
In His mercy passed not by
Little ones like me.

2 Mothers then the Savior sought
In the places where He taught,
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

Refrain 2:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
And to Him their children brought—
Little ones like me.

3 Did the Savior say them nay?
No! He kindly bade them stay,
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

Refrain 3:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Suffered none to turn away
Little ones like me.

4 ’Twas for them His life He gave,
To redeem them from the grave;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.

Refrain 4:
Little ones, little ones,
Little ones like me;
Jesus now will gladly save
Little ones like me.
