1 It fell upon a summer day,
When Jesus walked in Galilee,
The mothers from a village brought
Their children to His knee.
2 He took them in His arms, and laid
His hands on each remembered head;
"Suffer these little ones to come
To Me," He gently said.
3 "Forbid them not; unless ye bear
The childlike heart your hearts within,
Unto My Kingdom ye may come,
But may not enter in."
4 O Father, grant this childlike heart,
That I may come to Christ, and feel
His hands on me in blessing laid,
Love-giving, strong to heal.
