Jesus blessed a little girl
When she was very ill.
And when a storm was raging,
He commanded it, “Be still.”
Jesus blessed the lame to walk;
He helped the blind to see.
He loved all little children
And said, “Come unto me.”
Jesus fed the hungry crowd
With fish and loaves of bread,
For they had lingered late to hear
Each word that He had said.
Jesus gave His life for us—
Suffered in Gethsemane—
That we may be together
With Him eternally.
