LITTLE CHILDREN

Little children are a gift
An heritage in the Lord
That we might learn humility
According to God's Word.
Little children teach us much
As we open to their love
For we must be as little children
To our Father from above.

Little children are a blessing
As we watch them play and laugh
For when we look at little children
We see no hate nor wrath.
Little children God does give us
That as parents we might be,
A reflection of the Lord
God calls this, family.

For our Father up above
Told us in His Son;
"You cannot enter heaven-
unless like little children you become"
So let's bless our little children
As they grow from day to day;
Learn to be like Jesus to them
And train them in their way.

Matthew 8:13
