Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14


Sit with Me, My child,

I have something to share;

Come close to Me, daughter,

Come now to hear.


As a little child

I desire you to be;

For in being as such

You will taste eternity.


Be carefree and joyful

In all that you do;

Let the small things

Inspire sweet awe in you.


Find delight in butterflies,

Smile in smelling flowers,

Play in the sunshine,

Dance in rain showers.


Lovingly trust

Every single word I say,

Long to be with Me

Every moment, every day.


For then I will hold you,

I will carry you with love,

I will reveal many gifts

That await you above.


I will open your eyes

To miracles all around;

In the joy of My presence

Every grace will abound.


The secret, My daughter,

Is to be like a little child,

Rich with faith and love,

Ever tender and mild.


The Kingdom of God

Belongs to such as these,

For childlike faith

Does My heart ever please.


Yes, as a little child

I desire you to be;

Come now, My little one,

Let us taste eternity.


And cling to Me, child,

To Me be always near;

With My little children

Eternal joy I share.
