When mothers of Salem Their children




When 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 little children to come unto Me.”


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


How kind was our Savior
to bid these children welcome!
But there are many thousands who
have never heard His Name;
The Bible they have never read,
they know not that the Savior said,
“Suffer little children to come unto Me.”


O soon may the heathen
of every tribe and nation
Fulfill Thy blessèd 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 Thee!

And soon may the heathen
of every tribe and nation
Fulfill Thy blessèd 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 Thee!
