1. Jesus calls the children dear, “Come to me, and never fear, For I love the little children of the world; I will take you by the hand, Lead you to the better land, For I love the little children of the world.”
Refrain: Jesus loves the little children, All the children of the world, Red and yellow, black and white, They are precious in His sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.
2. Jesus is the Shepherd true, And He’ll always stand by you, For He loves the little children of the world; He’s a Savior great and strong, And He’ll shield you from the wrong, For He loves the little children of the world.
3. I am coming, Lord, to Thee, And Thy soldier I will be, For He loves the little children of the world; And His cross I’ll always bear, And for Him I’ll do and dare, For He loves the little children of the world.
Alternate stanza 1: Jesus loves the children dear, and He said when He was here, "Never turn the little ones away." And He said, "forbid them not; with my blood they have been bought. For I love the little children of the world."
