Representative Text

1. Children of Jerusalem
Sang the praise of Jesus’ name:
Children, too, of modern days
Join to sing the Savior’s praise.

Hark, hark, hark!
While infant voices sing,
Hark, hark, hark!
While infant voices sing
Loud hosannas, loud hosannas,
Loud hosannas to our King.

2. We are taught to love the Lord,
We are taught to read His Word;
We are taught the way to Heav’n:
Praise for all to God be giv’n. [Refrain]

3. Parents, teachers, old and young,
All unite to swell the song;
Higher and yet higher rise,
’Til hosannas fill the skies. [Refrain]
