How Dear to God Are Little Children



  1. 1. How dear to God are little children;

    With him their spirit life began.

    So priceless their security,

    Their innocence and purity;

    They are a part of his eternal plan.

  2. 2. To earthly parents God sends children

    To guide and teach, protect and love.

    Oh, let us keep the sacred trust

    That he has placed with each of us

    And help to guide them back to God above.

    How dear to God are little children.
