O Friend Of The Children We Ask Thee

Oh, Friend of the children, we ask thee today,
A blessing of grace to bestow,
To take ev’ry sin from our hearts far away,
And wash them and make them like snow.

Oh, take sin away, oh, take sin away,
And a blessing of grace now bestow;
Oh, Friend of the children, we ask thee today
To wash us and make “us like snow.”

We love the old story of thy boundless love,
For children that love here below,
How thou in thy goodness hast come from above,
A blessing on all to bestow. [Refrain]

We praise thee for blessings received here today,
For grace and for love freely giv’n,
For book of all books that will point us the way,
To a beautiful home in heaven. [Refrain]
