Hymn 659
WHEN mothers of Salem

1 WHEN mothers of Salem Their children brought to Jesus, The stern disciples drove them back, And bade them depart; But Jesus saw them ere they fled, And sweetly smiled and kindly said: Suffer little children to come unto me. 2 For I will receive them And fold them to my bosom; Iíll be a shepherd to these lambs, O drive them not away! For if their hearts to me they give, They shall with me in Glory live; Suffer little children to come unto me. 3 How kind was our Saviour To bid these children welcome! But there are many thousands who Have never heard his name; O shine upon them from above, And show thyself a God of love! Teach the little children to come unto thee. 4 O soon may the heathen, Of every tribe and nation, Fulfill Thy blessed word, and cast their idols all away; O shine upon them from above, And show Thyself a God of love; Teach the little children To come unto Thee.
