Jesus, Friend Of Little Children

Jesus, Friend Of Little Children

Tune: Quem Pastores

Jesus, friend of little children
Held them in his arms and blessed them
Hold our child for us for ever
Hear our prayer and touch our hearts

Jesus, Lord, you wept for loved ones,
Helped and comforted the grieving,
Meet us in our tearful journey
Hear our prayer and share our road.

Lord of Life, you showed us courage
How to face our hours of darkness,
Help us bear each other’s sorrows
Hear our prayer and make us strong.

Jesus Christ, you lived for others
Bore the cross of pain and sorrow.
Christ, who died and rose to save us
Hear our prayer and give us faith
