++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

O we belong to Jesus,

With all our hearts we love

Him who a little baby

Came from his home above.

And when he grew to manhood,

He loved the children so,

That in his arms he took them,

His blessing to bestow.

Chorus:

Yes, we belong to Jesus,

We’ll live for him above,

And tell the old, old story

Of Jesus and his love.

+++++

But there are little children

At home and o’er the sea

Who do not know the story–

For them we make our plea;

To them we give our pennies,

And though our gifts are small,

We know the dear Lord Jesus

Will bless and use them all.

Chorus

NELLIE SEGUIN FOX BARRETT

1923

WRITTEN FOR THE PRADLEROLL CHILDREN OF ST. PAUL METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH, SOUTH, TO SING AT THE DISTRICT RALLY DAY EXERCISES
