  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.
