Jesus, Friend Of Little Children

Melody -

W. J. Mathams, 1851

1. Jesus, friend of little children,
Be a friend to me;
Take my hand, and ever keep me
Close to thee.

2. Teach me how to grow in goodness
Daily as I grow;
Thou hast been a child, and surely
Thou dost know.
  3. Step by step, O lead me onward,
Upward into youth;
Wiser, stronger still becoming
In thy truth.

4. Never leave me nor forsake me,
Ever be my friend;
For I need thee from life's dawning
To its end.
