Song background:

This medley came as a request from a friend to bring the hymn "Come Follow Me" and a Primary song "Jesus Once Was a Little Child" together in a similar format to "A Child's Prayer" where children and adults sing parts and then come together creating harmony through layering the melody.  The meter was easy to mesh together, but a few of the chords in "Come Follow Me" required adjustments to harmonize with "Jesus Once Was A Little Child." I envision it being performed with the younger children singing "Jesus Once Was A Little Child" and the older children singing "Come Folllow Me."

There are two versions for this arrangment, simple and expanded. The simple version is the first verse of each song and the chorus of "Jesus Once Was a Little Child."  Each verse is sung seperately with the chorus and then verses are sung layered to create the harmony. The expanded version is the first verse of each song and the chorus of "Jesus Once Was A Little Child" with verses sung seperately, then together and an additional verse from "Come Follow Me" to include organ accompaniment and congregation and ending with a final chorus from "Jesus Once Was A Little Child."  The congregation and organ can continue through the end with the final chorus if desired, but could be directed to stop and let the Primary children and simple piano accompaniment finish with the final chorus.
