1. Then Jesus took their children, one by one.
With love, he blessed them.
He prayed unto the Father for each one,
And then he wept.
Then Jesus spoke unto the multitude
And said to them: “Behold your little ones.”
2. The multitude looked upward into heav’n.
The heavens opened.
And angels were descending out of heav’n,
As if in fire.
The angels circled round those little ones
With heav’nly fire,
And ministered to them.
“Behold your little ones.”
