Who Will Tell Our Children?

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Who will tell them of a baby?
Born, from God in Bethlehem
Who will tell the precious story?
Who will tell our dear children?

Who will tell them of a Teacher
Friend of sinners, you and I
Who will tell how much He loves us
Who will tell how, why He died?

Who will tell them of a Savior?
Sacrificed upon a cross
Who will tell them how He suffered
To pay sin’s eternal cost

Who will tell the awesome story
How He triumphed death with life
Overcame the cross with glory
Hope Immortal crowns our strife

Who will tell them, we, dear Mother
We, dear dad with tender heart
For oh, who will tell our children
If we fail to do our part?

If we fail, pray who will tell them
Of Jesus who loves them so?
Who will tell our children’s children
If they don't know what they don't know?
