Representative Text

1 As flowers in the morning sun
Look up to face the rays;
So may the love of Christ be won
In early childhood days.

O God of might, O God of light,
So powerful, so mild;
O God above, O God of love
Look down upon thy child

2 Like singing birds, that soar aloft
To greet the morning light;
So let these voices, young and soft,
Be heard in childhood bright. [Refrain]

3 Like tiny drops of rain that fall,
And flow into the sea;
So little ones that hear the call
Shall sit among the free. [Refrain]
