Jesus, Friend of little children
Jesus, Friend of little children,
be a friend to me;
take my hand, and ever keep me
close to thee.
Teach me how to grow in goodness,
daily as I grow;
thou hast been a child, and surely
thou dost know.
Never leave me, nor forsake me;
ever be my friend;
for I need thee, from life's dawning
to its end.
