323. There's a Friend for Little Children

7.6.7.6.D.
1
There's a Friend for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
A Friend who never changes,
 
Whose love can never die.
 
Unlike our friends by nature,
 
Who change from year to year,
 
This Friend is always worthy
 
And He is always near.
2
There's a rest for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
Who love the blessed Saviour,
 
And "Abba, Father," cry;
 
A rest from every turmoil,
 
From sin and danger free;
 
Where every little pilgrim
 
Shall rest eternally.
3
There's a home for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
Where Jesus reigns in glory,
 
A home of peace and joy.
 
No home on earth is like it,
 
Or can with it compare;
 
For everyone is happy,
 
Nor could be happier there.
4
There's a crown for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
And all who look for Jesus
 
Shall wear it by and by.
 
A crown of brightest glory,
 
Which He will then bestow
 
On all who've found His favor,
 
And loved His name below.
5
There's a song for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
A song that will not weary,
 
Though sung eternally;
 
A song which even angels
 
Can never, never sing;
 
They know not Christ as Saviour,
 
But worship Him as King.
6
There's a robe for little children
 
Above the bright blue sky;
 
And a harp of sweetest music,
 
And a palm of victory;
 
All, all above is treasured
 
And found in Christ alone;
 
Oh, come, dear little children,
 
That all may be your own.
