I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

1 John 2:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

If there is any doubt of God’s good grace,

Or that His mercy moves abundantly,

Then look no further than a child’s face

To know that in the name of Christ he’s free.

We all are born in sin and can’t escape 1

Unless we give to Jesus our whole lives, 2

But in His sovereign mercy God may drape

Forgiveness to a child whose death arrives.

There is an age we are accountable,

When we so choose to sin or turn to Christ.

Before that sin is insurmountable;

A baby can’t avoid the awful price. 3

The mercy of the Lord can so extend

To cover little children without end.

1Psalm 51:5

2Romans 10:9

3Romans 6:23
