    I Think When I Read That Sweet Story

    Lovingly

    1. I think when I read that sweet story of old,

    When Jesus was here among men,

    How he called little children like lambs to his fold;

    I should like to have been with him then.

    2. I wish that his hands had been placed on my head,

    That his arms had been thrown around me,

    That I might have seen his kind look when he said,

    “Let the little ones come unto me.”
