Come, children for brightly

Representative Text

1 Come children, for brightly our festival day,
Has dawned in its beauty and shines on our way.
With hearts and with voices, in one sweet accord,
We'll sing of our Saviour, our King and our Lord.

Welcome, welcome friends and schoolmates,
Welcome, welcome one and all,
Welcome, welcome glad we greet you,
Coming to our festal hall.

2 Dear Father in heaven, O guide us we pray,
Nor let thou our childish feet from thee e'er stray,
But keep us forever, from sin and from wrong,
And be with us all as we journey along. [Chorus]

3 And when we are called to pass thro' the dark vale,
And go from the shore with the boatman so pale.
O grant that our spirits forever may rest,
In beautiful Zion, the home of the blest. [Chorus]
