Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.@Matthew 19:14

Hear the gentle Shepherd
Calling lambs like me,
In His sweetest accents,
Let them come to Me.


Yes, we come, dear Savior
We, a little band,
Marching on together
To that heav’nly land.

He will bid us enter—
When our tirèd feet
Reach the Golden City,
He’ll be there to greet.


Thanks, dear blessèd Savior,
For Thy words of love,
Bidding children enter
Thy bright courts above.
