The ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS SONG...

"JESUS LOVES THE LITTLE CHILDREN"

Words by C. Herbert Woolston, music by George F. Root

Jesus loves the little children

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.

Jesus died for all the children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow

Black and white

They are precious in His sight.

Jesus died for all the children

Of the world.

Jesus rose for all the children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow

Black and white

They are precious in His sight.

Jesus rose for all the children

Of the world.

This is a contemporary version of:

"Jesus Loves The Little Children"

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow, black or white

They're all precious in His sight

Jesus loves the little children of the world

Whether you're rich or whether you're poor

It matters not to Him

He remembers where you're going

Not just where you've been

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow, black or white

They're all precious in His sight

Jesus loves the little children of the world

If your heart is troubled

Don't worry, don't you fret

He knows that you have heard His call

And he won't forget

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow, black or white

They're all precious in His sight

Jesus loves the little children of the world

All around the world tonight

His children rest assured

That He will watch and He will keep us

Safe and secure

Jesus loves the little children

All the children of the world

Red and yellow, black or white

They're all precious in His sight

Jesus loves the little children of the world.

I suggest adding alternative lyrics that don't use red & yellow since those are no longer acceptable
