Full Text

1 We are little Christian children,
We can run, and talk, and play;
The great God of earth and heaven,
Made and keeps us every day.

2 We are little Christian children;
Christ, the Son of God most high,
With His precious Blood redeem'd us,
Dying that we might not die.

3 We are little Christian children,
God, the Holy Ghost, is here;
Dwelling in our hearts, to make us
Kind and holy, good and dear.

4 We are little Christian children,
Sav'd by Him who lov'd us most,
We believe in God Almighty,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Amen.
