Jesus Loves The Little Children

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

Jesus calls the children dear,
“Come to me and never fear,
For I love the little children of the world;
I will take you by the hand,
Lead you to the better land,
For I love the little children of the world.”

Chorus
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Jesus is the Shepherd true,
And He’ll always stand by you,
For He loves the little children of the world;
He’s a Savior great and strong,
And He’ll shield you from the wrong,
For He loves the little children of the world.

Chorus
Jesus died for all the children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus died for all the children of the world.

I am coming, Lord, to Thee,
And Your soldier I will be,
For You love the little children of the world;
And Your cross I’ll always bear,
And for You I’ll do and dare,
For You love the little children of the world.

Chorus
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

  4. Dear Adrienne,

    Thank you so much! It is so refreshing to find people in the world who still have faith in Jesus Christ and are not ashamed to own Him. I appreciate your testimony. I also love the two pictures you've posted on this particular blog. I'm very familiar with these two artists, both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). They do such a wonderful job of painting the Savior. I believe the first one is by Del Parson, and the second is by Liz Lemon Swindle. If you like these two paintings, you really should research more of their work. I'm a huge fan, and have several small prints from both of them.
