Children

Music from the New Era

1. They are idols of hearts and of households,
They are angels of God in disguise.
The sunlight still sleeps in their tresses,
His glory still gleams in their eyes.
These truants from home and from Heaven
They have made me more manly and mild,
And I know now how Jesus could liken,
The Kingdom of God to a child.

 

2. Oo Oo Oo Oo Oo Oo
And I know now how Jesus could liken,
The Kingdom of God to a child.

 

Words taken from a poem by Charles Dickens, “The Children,” Heart Throbs, ed. Joe Mitchell Chapple (Chapple Publishing Co., Ltd,: Boston, 1905).
