  1. 1. I think when I read that sweet story of old,
    When Jesus was here among men,
    How he called little children like lambs to his fold;
    I should like to have been with him then.
  2. 2. I wish that his hands had been placed on my head,
    That his arms had been thrown around me,
    That I might have seen his kind look when he said,
    "Let the little ones come unto me."
  3. Words: Jemima Luke, 1813-1906
    Music: Leah Ashton Lloyd, 1894-1965
