Jesus is our dearest Friend,
He will never, never send
Little ones from Him away,
Hark ! He calleth them today.
Jesus is calling, Jesus is calling,
Jesus is calling,
"Come and follow Me."
When He died our souls to save,
Freely His dear life He gave,
That to heaven we might go,
All because He loved us so.
He will keep our hearts from sin,
If today we will begin
Walking in His steps so true,
Work for Him we then may do.
"Our dearest Friend"
