Ye fair green hills of Galilee

Author: Dr. E. R. Conder, 1820-1892 Hymnal: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book #81 (1917) Topics: Christ Christ, Childhood of; Christ Christ, Childhood of Lyrics: 1 Ye fair green hills of Galilee, That girdle quiet Nazareth, What glorious vision did ye see, When He who conquered sin and death Your flow'ry slopes and summits And grew in grace with man and God? 2 We saw no glory crown His head As childhood ripened into youth; No angels on His errands sped, He wrought no sign. But meekness, truth, And duty marked each step He trod; And love to man, and love to God. 3 Jesus! my Saviour, Master, King, Who didst for me the burden bear, While saints in heaven Thy glory sing, Let me on earth Thy illness wear: Mine be the path Thy feet have trod; Duty and love to man and God.

Forward! be our Watchword

Author: H. Alford Hymnal: Concordia #220 (1918) Topics: Childhood and Youth Youth; Childhood Lyrics: 1 Forward! be our watch-word, Steps and voices join'd; Seek the things before us, Not a look behind. Burns the fiery pillar At our army's head; Who shall dream of shrinking, By our Captain led? Forward thro' the desert, Thro' the toil and fight! Jordan flows before us; Zion beams with light. 2 Forward, when in childhood Buds the infant mind; All thro' youth and man-hood, Not a tho't behind. Speed thro' realms of nature, Climb the steps of grace; Faint not, till in glory Gleams our Father’s face. Forward, all the lifetime, Climb from height to height, Till the head be hoary, Till the eve be light. 3 Glories upon glories Hath our God prepar'd, By the souls that love Him One day to be shar'd. Eye hath not beheld them, Ear hath never heard; Nor of these have utter'd Thought or speech a word. Forward, marching east-ward, Where the heav'n is bright, Till the veil be lifted, Till our faith be sight. Tune Title: WATCHWORD

Christian children must be holy

Hymnal: Voices of Praise #57 (1883) Topics: Our Lord Jesus Christ His Childhood Lyrics: 1 Christian children must be holy, Serving God from day to day; Never is the time too early For a Christian to obey. 2 Jesus taught us in His childhood; Only eight short days He saw Ere He suffered circumcision And obeyed His Father's law. 3 He who is our great Example, Let no moment run to loss; Not one precious hour He wasted From the cradle to the Cross. 4 Soon He sorrowed, soon He suffered; We must meek and gentle be, Little pain and childish trial Ever bearing patiently 5 Soon He showed a Son's obedience; We must early learn to do Not our own will, but our Father's, And be found obedient too. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: SPRINGHILL

When His Salvation Bringing

Author: John King Hymnal: Concordia #200 (1918) Topics: Childhood and Youth Childhood First Line: When, His salvation bringing Lyrics: 1 When, His salvation bringing, To Zion Jesus came, The children all stood singing, Hosannas to His name; Nor did their zeal offend Him, But, as He rode along, He let them still attend Him, And smiled to hear their song. 2 And since the Lord retaineth His love for children still, Tho' now as King He reigneth On Zion's heav'nly hill, We'll flock around His banner, Who sits upon His throne, And cry aloud, "Hosanna To David's royal Son." 3 For should we fail proclaiming Our great Redeemer's praise, The stones, our silence shaming, Would their Hosannas raise. But shall we only render The tribute of our words? No; while our hearts are tender, They too shall be the Lord's. Tune Title: TOURS

The wise may bring

Hymnal: Concordia #201 (1918) Topics: Childhood and Youth Childhood First Line: The wise may bring their learning Lyrics: 1 The wise may bring their learning, The rich may bring their wealth, And some may bring their greatness, And some bring strength and health; We, too, would bring our treasures To offer to the King: We have no wealth or learning; What shall we children bring? 2 We'll bring Him hearts that love Him; We'll bring Him thankful praise, And young souls meekly striving To walk in holy ways: And these shall be the treasures We offer to the King, And these are gifts that even The poorest child may bring. 3 We'll bring the little duties We have to do each day; We'll try our best to please Him At home, at school, at play: And better are these treasures To offer to our King, Than richest gifts without them; Yet these a child may bring.

I Think when I Read

Author: Jemima Luke Hymnal: Concordia #203 (1918) Topics: Childhood and Youth Childhood First Line: I think when I read that sweet story of old Lyrics: 1 I think when I read that sweet story of old, When Jesus was here among men, How He called little children as lambs to His fold, I should like to have been with them then. 2 I wish that His hands had been placed on my head, That His arm had been thrown around me, And that I might have seen His kind look when He said, "Let the little ones come unto Me." 3 Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may go, And ask for a share in His love; And if I thus earnestly seek Him below, I shall see Him and hear Him above. 4 In that beautiful place He has gone to prepare For all who are washed and forgiven; And many dear children shall be with Him there, For of such is the kingdom of heaven. 5 But thousands and thousands who wander and fall, Never heard of that heavenly home; I wish they could know there is room for them all, And that Jesus has bid them to come.

There's a Friend for little Children

Author: Albert Midlane Hymnal: Concordia #205 (1918) Topics: Childhood and Youth Childhood Lyrics: 1 There's a Friend for little children Above the bright blue sky, A Friend who never changeth, Whose love will never die; Our earthly friends may fail us, And change with changing years, This Friend is always worthy The precious Name He bears. 2 There's a rest for little children Above the bright blue sky, Who love the blessed Savior And Abba, Father, cry; A rest from ev'ry turmoil, From sin and danger free, Where ev'ry little pilgrim Shall rest eternally. 3 There's a home for little children Above the bright blue sky, Where Jesus reigns in glory,-- A home of peace and joy; No home on earth is like it, Nor can with it compare, For ev'ry one is happy, Nor could be happier, there. 4 There's a crown for little children Above the bright blue sky, And all who look for Jesus Shall wear it by and by; A crown of brightest glory, Which He will then bestow On all who've found His favor, And loved His Name below.
