|Text:||Let Children Hear the Mighty Deeds|

|Tune:||NUN DANKET ALL'|
1 Let children hear the mighty deeds
Which God performed of old,
Which in our younger years we saw,
And which our fathers told.
2 Make unto them His glories known,
His works of pow'r and grace;
And we'll convey His wonders down
Thro' ev'ry rising race.
3 Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
And they again to theirs
That generations yet unborn
May teach them to their heirs.
5 To learn that in our God alone
Their hope securely stands,
That they may ne'er forget His works,
But walk in His commands.
