Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them.@Luke 18:16

T. W. Stewart, in Boundless Love, by J. Lincoln Hall & Irvin H. Mack (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Hall-Mack Company, 1896).

George M. Evans (🔊 pdf nwc).

Jesus is calling the children,
Unto His side;
Opens His arms to receive them,
Opens them wide.

Refrain

Gently to lead them,
Guard them and keep them,
Jesus is calling
The lambs to His fold.

Jesus is calling the children,
Why should they stay
Out in the wilderness wandering,
Going astray?

Refrain

Jesus is calling the children,
Calling today;
Hasten, each one, for His blessing,
Do not delay.

Refrain

Jesus is calling the children;
Here, Lord, are we,
Safe in the Good Shepherd’s keeping
Ever to be.

Refrain
