1 Suffer the children to come unto Me,
Suffer the children to come unto Me,
Suffer the children to come unto Me;
Such in My heavenly kingdom shall be,
Such in My heavenly kingdom shall be,
Such in My heavenly kingdom shall be.

2 Into His arms with the tenderst care,
Into His arms with the tenderst care,
Into His arms with the tenderst care;
He will receive us and shelter us there,
He will receive us and shelter us there,
He will receive us and shelter us there.

3 Keep us dear Saviour forever Thine own,
Keep us dear Saviour forever Thine own,
Keep us dear Saviour forever Thine own;
Lead us in safety to heaven our home,
Lead us in safety to heaven our home,
Lead us in safety to heaven our home.
