Jesus Once Was a Little Child

 


Lyrics

  1. 1. — Jesus once was a little child,

    A little child like me;

    And he was pure and meek and mild,

    As a little child should be.

  2. [Chorus]

    So, little children,

    Let’s you and I

    Try to be like him,

    Try, try, try.

  3. 2. He played as little children play

    The pleasant games of youth;

    But he never got vexed if the game went wrong,

    And he always spoke the truth.
