Lyrics

Suffer little children,
And forbid them not,
Coming unto Jesus,
This is what He taught.

Refrain

Jesus loves the children,
And we love Him, too;
We will do whatever
He would have us do.

There are many places
We can serve Him now;
If we’re only willing,
He will tell us how.

Refrain

We will not be idle
When there’s work to do,
For He loves the children,
And we love Him, too.
