Suffer the Children to Come Unto Me

Author: Anon. Hymnal: Great Revival Hymns #25 (1911) First Line: There is no sweeter story told Refrain First Line: “Suffer the children to come unto Me,” Lyrics: 1 There is no sweeter story told In all the blessed Book Than how the Lord within His arms The little children took. Refrain: “Suffer the children to come unto Me,” Jesus still speaks it, O parents, to thee; “Do not forbid them from coming,” said: He— “Of such is the kingdom of heav’n.” 2 We love Him for the tender touch That made the leper whole; And for the wondrous words that healed The tired, sin-sick soul. [Refrain] 3 But, closer to His loving self Our human hearts are brought, When for the little children’s sake, Love’s sweetest spell is wrought. [Refrain] 4 For their young eyes His sorr’wing face A smile of gladness wore; A smile that for His little ones, It weareth evermore. [Refrain] Languages: English Tune Title: [There is no sweeter story told]

Mary B. Sleight

Author of "Forbid Them Not"

Anonymous

Person Name: Anon. Author of "Suffer the Children to Come Unto Me" in Great Revival Hymns In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries.

Alvin W. Roper

Person Name: A. W. Roper Composer of "[There is no sweeter story told]" in Great Revival Hymns
