Lyrics

We are little children, very young indeed,
But the Sav­ior’s promise each of us may plead.

Refrain

If we seek Him early, if we come today,
We can be His little friends, He has said we may.

Little friends of Je­sus, what a happy thought!
Was a precious promise in the Bi­ble taught!

Refrain

Little friends of Je­sus, walking by His side,
With His arm around us, every step to guide.

Refrain

We must love Him dearly with a constant love,
Then we’ll go and see Him in our home above.
