1. Jesus loves the little children,
And though sinful I may be,
Yet He calls me, sweetly calls me,
Little one, come to Me.

Refrain
Jesus dearly loves us,
He loves us, He loves us,
Jesus dearly loves us,
The Bible tells us so.

2. Oh, I want to be like Jesus,
Meek and gentle, pure and mild;
Softly speaking, helping others,
Just as a little child. [Refrain]

3. If I try to serve and praise Him,
He will send an angel band
To protect and guide me ever,
Holding me by the hand. [Refrain]
