1. Jesus once was a little child,A little child like me;And he was pure and meek and mild,As a little child should be.
2. He played as little children playThe pleasant games of youth;But he never got vexed if the game went wrong,And he always spoke the truth.
So, little children,Let's you and ITry to be like him,Try, try, try.
