We are but a band of children,
We are few, and weak and small,
But we want to work for Jesus,
And there's work enough for all.

Refrain

We are a missionary band,
Missionary band, missionary band;
We are a missionary band,
Doing all we can.

There are many little children,
Far away across the sea,
Who have never heard of Jesus,
But to idols bend the knee.

Refrain

So we want to send them teachers,
Who will teach them how to pray,
To the dear and loving Savior,
Who will wash their sins away.

Refrain

It was Jesus died to save them,
'Twas for this to earth He came;
He will make them pure and happy,
When they learn to love His Name.

Refrain

'Tis the Bible that will lead them
From the darkness into light,
And we all are glad to help them
Break away from heathen night.

Refrain

Cheerfully we give our pennies,
And we like to give and plan,
For we are young missionaries,
Doing all the good we can.

Refrain
