    Verse 1
    There's a Friend for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    A Friend who never changeth,
    Whose love can never die.
    Unlike our friends by nature,
    Who change with changing years,
    This Friend is always worthy
    The precious name He bears.

    Verse 2
    There's a rest for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    For those who love the Saviour,
    And Abba Father cry.
    A rest from every trouble,
    From sin and danger free,
    Where every little pilgrim
    Shall rest eternally.

    Verse 3
    There's a home for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    Where Jesus reigns in glory,
    A home of peace and joy.
    No home on earth is like it,
    Or can with it compare;
    For every one is happy
    Nor could be happier there.

    Verse 4
    There's a crown for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    And all who look to Jesus
    Shall wear it by-and-by.
    A crown of brightest glory,
    Which He will then bestow
    On those who found His favour,
    And loved Him here below.

    Verse 5
    There's a song for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    A song that will not weary,
    Though sung continually;
    A song which even angels
    Can never, never sing;
    They know not Christ as Saviour,
    But worship Him as King.

    Verse 6
    There's a robe for little children
    Above the bright blue sky,
    And a harp of sweetest music,
    And a palm of victory.
    All, all above is treasured,
    And found in Christ alone;
    O come, dear little children,
    That all may be your own.
