The Cunning Papoose In The Wigwam


The cunning papoose in the wigwam that lives,
Whose life is so happy and free,
Is my Indian brother; and Jesus loves Him
Just as He loves you and me.

Refrain:
The world Children for Jesus,
The world Children for Jesus,
The world Children for Jesus who loves them,
Who loves ev’ry one.

The Eskimo babies are wrapped all in fur;
They live in the north country,
Where cold winds blow; and Jesus loves Him
Just as He loves you and me. [Refrain]

The little Jap babies, with shining dark eyes,
Live on a green isle in the sea;
Too many to count; and Jesus loves Him
Just as He loves you and me. [Refrain]

The pretty brown babies, who roll in the sand,
In a country far over the sea,
Are my African brothers; and Jesus loves Him
Just as He loves you and me. [Refrain]

And all the dear babies, wherever they grow,
So cunning, so precious, so wee,
Are God’s darling children; and Jesus loves Him
Just as He loves you and me. [Refrain]
