Mark 10:13-16 - People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.  [14] When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  [15] I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."  [16] And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. 



I know that I am but a child

The wonders 'round me grow.

The world's been opened up to me.

No longer, tossed to and fro.


My Lord's opened up the boundaries

He "guides" me every day.

Each moment, I acknowledge him

and He directs my way.


I know that if I stumble

He'll lift me to my feet.

I know that if I'm needy

He'll give me what is meet.


No longer need I worry

beyond this present day.

Nor plan and plot the future.

"He knows" just what to say.


I thank you Holy Father

for the wisdom that you give.

Because of "Christ" within me

I shall forever live.
