Representative Text

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

Refrain:
Hark, hark, hark, while children’s voices sing!
Hark, hark, hark, while children’s 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 Heaven,
Praise for all to God be given.

3 Parents, teachers, old and young,
All unite to swell the song,
Higher and yet higher rise
Till hosannas reach the skies.
