642. Come, Children, Lift Your Voices

1 Come, children lift your voices,
And sing with us today,
As to the Lord, our Saviour,
Our grateful vows we pay;
We thank Thee, Lord, for sending
The gentle show’rs of rain;
For summer suns which ripen
The fields of golden grain.

Refrain:
Come, children lift your voices,
And sing with us today,
As to the Lord, our Saviour,
Our grateful vows we pay.

2 Come, join our glad Hosanna
As gladly still we sing,
Rejoicing in the favor
Of Christ, our Lord and King;
For good is His creation,
All beautiful and fair,
E’en angels from the heav’nly seats
Our grateful gladness share. [Refrain]

3 May we be holy living
Thy praises echo forth,
And tell Thy boundless mercies,
To all the list’ning earth;
May we grow up as branches,
In Christ, the one true Vine,
Bear fruit to life Eternal,
And be forever Thine. [Refrain]
