Don't you wish that we could see Him,
Christ, the blessed Saviour dear,
As the little children saw Him
When He dwelt amang them here ?
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Tho' Thy face we cannot see,
Thou art still our Friend and Saviour,
And Thy children we may be.
Don't you wish that we could hear Him
As they did in Galilee,
When He call'd them near to bless them,
Saying, "Let them come to Me ?"
Don't you wish that we could know Him
As those children knew Him then,
When He dwelt and mov'd amang them
When He dwelt earth with men ?
