1 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.

2 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. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]
