1. Once Jesus was a child like me,
But O, so kind and true;
His ever watchful eye can see
The very things I do.

Refrain
Yes, Jesus was a child like me,
But O, so pure and true;
My blessèd Savior He will be,
If I but love Him, too.

2. He played upon the village street,
In such a pleasant way;
And ran with glad and willing feet,
His parents to obey. [Refrain]

3. I want to be His little child,
And more like Him to grow;
And ever truthful, good and mild,
Because He loves me so. [Refrain]

4. And now to Jesus I will pray,
To pardon me from sin;
And if I serve Him every day,
His blessing I shall win. [Refrain]
