Everyone Can Play
Words: Laura Peetoom
When mothers of Salem
brought all their kids to Jesus,
the stern disciples shooed them back
and told them “Go away!”
But Jesus laughed and shook his head,
and to his grown-up friends he said,
“Let the little children come and play with me!
“For I want to hug them
and hear them tell their stories;
I want to know what’s in their hearts
and what they’ll do today.
See, in my Father’s kingdom
you are all just like these children.
In our Father’s kingdom,
everyone can play!”
