39 Suffer The Little Children To Come Unto Me

Sung without instrumental accompaniment

“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”

When the mothers of Salem
their children  brought to Jesus,
The stern disciples drove them back
and bade them to depart,
But Jesus saw them ere they fled
and sweetly smiled and kindly said:
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”

“For I will receive them and
fold them in My bosom,
‘ll be a shepherd to those lambs,
O drive them not away,
For if their hearts to Me they give
they shall with Me in glory live.
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”

How kind was our Saviour
to bid those children welcome,
For there are many thousands who
have never heard His name.
The Bible they have never read,
they know not that the Saviour said:
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.“
“Suffer the little children to come unto Me.”

O soon may the heathen
of every tribe and nation
Fulfill the blessed word and
cast their idols all away.
O shine upon them from above,
and show Thyself a God of love.
“Teach the little children to come unto Me.”
“Teach the little children to come unto Me.”
