Let The Children Come

Verse 1: G Jesus looked so weary C G From the worries of the day. D C But the look on His face lighted, G D As the children came His way. C G But before He could reach out to them, C G And join them in their play, C G His grown-up band of followers C D Told the kids to go away. Chorus: G Let the children come. C D Don't dare drive them away. G In them the Kingdom comes, C G Hear the Holy, foolish things they say. C G The springtime of their life decides C G The adults they'll become. C G So let the children come, C G Please let the children come. Verse 2: G The golden gift of childhood C D Lasts a lifetime if you try. G The simple trusting faith they own C D Keeps scholars mystified. C G And so the Lord adopts us, C G For His daughters and His sons. C G For the Kingdom is for children, C G So please let the children come. This is another great example of God's love for us! This is pretty close to the original song, you could try adding a capo, but I think it sounds okay this way. Tell me what you think.
