"Suffer the Little Children to Come Unto Me"

Matthew 10:14  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 10
Bring the little ones to Jesus,
He has said you may;
He took the children in His arms,
Not one was turned away.
Bring the little ones to Jesus,
Telling of His love;
How for them He left the brightness
Of His home above.
Bring the little ones to Jesus,
Telling of His cross;
Where He bore the sinner’s judgment,
Suffered shame and loss.
Tell the little ones of Jesus,
Of a Friend on high,
Ever true and never changing,
Who will never die.
Bring the little ones to Jesus
Ere their feet shall stray
In the paths of sin and folly,
Bring them now— “today.”
Bring the little ones to Jesus
In believing prayer;
Lay them down in His blest presence,
And just leave them there.
