Words & Mu­sic: Will­iam A. Og­den, in Pri­ma­ry Songs, ed­it­ed by Mar­guer­ite Cook (Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois: Da­vid C. Cook, 1878), num­ber 35 (🔊 pdf nwc).

William A. Ogden (1841–1897)


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.


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.


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.
