If I come to Jesus,
He will make me glad;
He will give me pleasure
When my heart is sad.

Refrain

If I come to Jesus,
Happy I shall be.
He is gently calling
Little ones like me.

If I come to Jesus
He will hear my prayer;
He will love me dearly,
He my sins did bear.

Refrain

If I come to Jesus
He will take my hand,
He will kindly lead me
To a better land.

Refrain

There with happy children,
Robed in snowy white,
I shall see my Savior
In that world so bright.
