116. The Children's Meeting

1 Oh, we love the children’s meeting,
Where we learn the golden rule;
Here we come with happy greeting
In our precious little school.

Refrain:
Oh, how sweet!
The Lord is here today;
And the angels o’er us hover,
As we children sing and pray.

2 Oh, it makes us feel so happy
That we have a meeting, too,
Where we sing our songs to Jesus,
Who has loved us children so. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, bless our little meeting,
Teach us how to love Thee more,
Help us sing and pray and worship,
And Thy holy name adore. [Refrain]

4 And our dear, beloved brethren,
Read the precious, holy word,
And instruct us little children
To be good and please the Lord. [Refrain]
