Representative Text

Call the children home, for the Savior bids them come,
In the paths of peace may they ever sweetly roam.
helping by their brightness each soul upon its way,
To the home of everlasting day.

Chorus:
Call them home to heav’n above;
Teach them all the Savior’s love;
Safely guide them in the way,
Leading unto perfect day.

Call the children home, may they never stray away;
May they give to Christ the glad service of each day.
Loving kind and true there is work for ev’ry one,
Till the crown of life at last is won.

Call the children home, Jesus’ love is freely giv’n;
He will safely guide in the way that leads to heav’n.
Never stray form Him, keeping close to His dear side,
He’ll protect whatever may betide.
