Lyrics

I’ve two little hands to work for Je­sus,
One little tongue His praise to tell,
Two little ears to hear His counsel,
One little voice a song to swell.

Refrain

Lord, we come, Lord, we come,
In our childhood’s early morning;
Lord, we come, Lord, we come,
Come to learn of Thee.

I’ve two little feet to tread the pathway,
Up to the heav’nly courts above;
Two little eyes to read the Bi­ble,
Telling of Je­sus’ wondrous love.

Refrain

I’ve one little heart to give to Je­sus,
One little soul for Him to save,
One little life for His dear service,
One little self that He must have.
