Representative Text

1 Bright gleams of sunshine fill valleys fair,
Glad songs of joy are heard ev'rywhere;
All nature seems rejoicing to say,
"O welcome, Children's Day."

Our voices raise
in notes of praise,
With bright songs ringing,
Our tribute bringing
To Christ our King,
Whose love we sing,
We'll praise him ever for the Children's Day.

2 O welcome, welcome, bright, golden hours
With song of birds and perfume of flow'rs,
Our hearts and lives we joyfully bring
An off'ring to our King. [Chorus]

3 Our all we bring, our tribute of love
To Christ our King now reigning above;
We'll serve him now and praise evermore,
The One whom we adore. [Chorus]

4 O Jesus, Saviour, thee we adore,
We'll praise thy holy name evermore;
We'll serve thee ever, bringing to thee
Our lives, thine own to be. [Chorus]
