When I was 3 to 5 and possibly younger my mother sang this song to me and with me many times. Maybe it was sung every day. There were certainly days when it was sung several times. I adored it then. I adore it now. AND I really believed that Jesus loved all of the little children of the world equally no matter their plight or color. I still believe it and also think a few other masterful beings also love the children of OUR world.
This song was a comfort to me because I knew I was loved as a little white girl living in Michigan. Here are the lyrics of the first verse:
Jesus Loves the Little Children
Jesus loves the
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world
There are also other verses—seems my family was a one verse, keep it simple family.
