Kids poem: Little Friends of Jesus

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 5, 2016.

  1. Young children sang "Hosanna !”
    Where Jesus drew the throng ;
    The palm-branch was their banner,
    And angels taught their song.

    Those little prompt believers
    In Christ, their Lord and King,
    Were of the first receivers
    Of joy he came to bring.

    And their sweet infant story,
    That now so fresh appears.
    Has given their Savior glory
    These eighteen hundred years.
    Whilst they the palm-branch bearing,
    When Christ on earth was found,
    Bright crowns in Heaven are wearing,
    And sing his throne around.

    Though there his brightness falleth
    On saint and seraphim,
    On earth he sweetly calleth
    The little ones to him.
    He loves the hearts of childhood
    Made his by faith and prayer ;
    As we, from heath and wild wood
    Love flowers for our parterre.

    Each gift each word that's spoken
    To spread his kingdom here,
    He treasures as a token
    Of love to him sincere.
    And, little sons and daughters
    Of happy Christian land,
    Know ye, beyond the waters,
    What heathen idols stand ?

    There heathen children never
    The name of Jesus heard !
    They have no hope forever,
    Unless they learn his word.
    If yours be love's confidings
    In him, his love proclaim :
    Send out the glorious tidings
    Of life in Jesus' name.

    'Twill, as your signal palmy,
    Be witnessed from on high,
    And yield an unction balmy
    To souls that else would die.
    0, send the heavenly manna,
    The "bread of life" to them,
    That they may sing "Hosanna”
    In New Jerusalem.
