Ye Parents, Hear What Jesus Taught

Full Text

1 You parents, hear what Jesus taught
When little ones to him were brought:
Forbid them not, but heed my plea
Permitting them to come to me.

2 Obey your Lord and let his truth
Be taught your children in their youth
That they in church and school may dwell
And learn their Savior's praise to tell.

3 For if you love them as you ought,
To Christ your children will be brought.
If thus you place them in his care,
All in your fam'ly well shall fare.
