Matthew 19 New International Version
The Little Children and Jesus
13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.
14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world
Having attended Sunday school many moons ago the above chorus was a well known and very popular chorus in those days. I hate to say this but I think its sad to think we can’t sing such a chorus in today’s society because of the third line.
