Suffer Little Children to Come unto Me
(published by Horace Waters, N.Y., 1863)
What did our Lord and Saviour say
When others wished to drive us away?
“Suffer little children to come unto me,
Of such is the kingdom if heav’n.”
What did he say who from above
Came down to teach us kindness and love?
What did he say whose Spirit shed
Hope to the living, life to the dead?
What were the words of him who bled,
Nailed to the cross with thorns on his head?
If on his mercy we rely,
What will his words be when we die?
