Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Little children, from above, sent to us with joy and love, Bring a hope so clear and bright, Father, help us raise them right.
Verse 2: O how tender is the sight: Little ones in bed at night, Parents praying at their feet, “Father, keep them pure and sweet.”
Verse 3: Little children soon are grown; Can they face the world alone? As they strive and struggle through, Father, let them turn to You.
Verse 4: When our time to go draws near, We may leave our children here; To the new land, far away, Father, bring them home some day.
