Much displeased and He said, Here see

Allow the little children to

come unto me, and to me view


And forbid them not, for of such

Is sure the kingdom of god much

Receive them do frustrate [their] own lot


For if we not kingdom receive

As the little children believe

We shall not enter therein, He

Blessed the children there then, so be
