543 ~ Jesus, Friend of Little Children
Jesus, Friend of little children, Be a Friend to me; Take my hand and ever keep me Close to Thee.
Teach me how to grow in goodness, Daily as I grow; Thou hast been a child, and surely Thou dost know.
Step by step, O, lead me onward, Upward into youth; Wiser, stronger, still becoming In Thy truth.
Never leave me, nor forsake me, Ever be my Friend; For I need Thee from life's dawning To its end.
