Jesus Once Was a Little Child

35395, Children's Songbook, The Savior, Jesus Once Was a Little Child, 55

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 play
The 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 I
Try to be like him,
Try, try, try.
