This Child's Blessing

   Words & Music By Gary Livingston

 

I remember as a little boy sittin' on my mama's knee

We were waiting for Jesus, waiting so patiently

 

All of us children had gathered, some too young to understand

We hoped to catch a glimpse of Jesus and maybe touch His hand

 

Then just around the corner came a man dressed in white

He was followed by twelve disciples and surrounded by heaven's light

 

Then His disciples approached us and said, "You do not need to stay.

You have no need to be here. Why don't you go on your way?"

 

But Jesus saw what was happening and He took His disciples aside

He had some strong words to say to them; words which cannot be denied

 

(He said...)

          Suffer the little children, bring them each and every one

For of such is the kingdom of heaven; the place where I am from

          Forbid not the little children, bring them unto me

For to enter my Father's kingdom you must become like one of these

 

And so I went to Jesus, in His arms He held me close

He prayed unto His Father words which only heaven knows

 

[Instrumental]

 

From that day of this child's blessing many years have passed away

But I will never forget the words of love my Savior said that day

 

(He said...)

          Suffer the little children, bring them each and every one

For of such is the kingdom of heaven; the place where I am from

          Forbid not the little children, bring them unto me

For to enter my Father's kingdom you must become like one of these...

                                                you must become like one of these
