while I sit upon your knee

I wanted to have a little talk dear Jesus, can I sit upon your knee?
cause I'm just a little boy Jesus ,you see I'm not even three.
but mama said I could talk to you if I ever did get sad,
she said you would always talk to me and you never would get mad.

I wanted to tell you Jesus that I love you so very much,
mama says you're the master and you have a mighty touch.
she says that you are my friend no matter what I do,
that you will always love me and I could count on you.

so I just wanted to ask you Jesus while I sit upon your knee,
will you help me to be good, while you're watching over me?
cause I want to be just like you and be good all the time,
and watch mommy and daddy too ,Jesus if you wouldn't mind.
