|Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven
belongs to such as these.
|Bridge||God said, that's my beloved son
In him I take a great delight.
He sent his holy prophet John
To teach His precious children right.
|Verse 1||When Jesus was baptized by John
God spoke from heaven in all might
This One is my beloved son
In Him I take a great delight.
And with this voice there came along
Descending gently from above
To teach his children right from wrong
His Holy spirit like a dove.
|Verse 2||Such innocent and pristine child,
Approaching Jesus just to gaze -
Out of the mouths of infants slight
He has ordained victorious praise.
Whoever welcomes one of these,
Whoever welcomes in my name,
That one is kindly hosting me
And hosts the one from whom I came.
