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.
