Representative Text

1 Come, children, hail the Prince of Peace
Obey the Saviour's call;
Come, seek His face and taste His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

Chorus:
In the dewy time of youth, let us come,
Before the brown leaves fall;
He will guide us with His truth, let us come,
And crown Him Lord of all.

2 Ye lambs of Christ, your tribute bring,
Ye children, great and small;
Hosanna sing to Christ your King,
And crown Him Lord of all. [Chorus]

3 This Jesus will your sins forgive,
O haste! before Him fall;
For you He died, that you might live
To crown Him Lord of all. [Chorus]

Notes

Come, children, hail the Prince of Peace. [Praise to Christ.] An anonymous hymn in 5 stanzas of 4 lines not traced beyond the Sunday School Hymn Book, Phila., 1820, i., No. 162, and the Silver St. S. Scholar's Companion (7th ed.), 1821. From the time of its insertion, in 1843, in Bateman's Sacred Melodies for Children, it has been growing in favour both in England and America. In the latter it is sometimes found, as in the Baltimore Sunday School Hymn Book, 1843, as "Come, let us praise the Prince of Peace”, the order of the stanzas being changed and the hymn altered. It is an imitation of “All hail the power of Jesus' Name." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
