1 Come, Christian children, come, and raise
Your voice with one accord;
Come, sing in joyful songs of praise
The glories of your Lord.

2 Sing of the wonders of His love,
And loudest praises give
To Him Who left His throne above,
And died that you might live.

3 Sing of the wonders of His truth,
And read in every page
The promise made to earliest youth,
Fulfilled to latest age.

4 Sing of the wonders of his power,
Who with His own right arm
Upholds and keeps you hour by hour,
And shields from every harm.

5 Sing of the wonders of His grace,
Who made and keeps you His,
And guides yo to the appointed place
At His right hand in bliss.

Notes

Come, happy children, come and raise. Dorothy A. Thrupp. [Child's Song of Praise.] Appeared in her Hymns for the Young, c. 1830 (4th. ed. 1836, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. In 1848 it appeared again in Dr. Miller's Psalms & Hymns, 1848, and others, as, "Come, Christian children, come and raise." This text, with slight alterations, the omission of stanza vi., and the passing on of stanza ii. (rewritten) to the end as stanza v. was repeated in Church Hymns, 1871, No. 567. In the Methodist Free Church Sunday School Hymn Book, 1868, Miss Thrupp's text is again altered as "Come, let the young unite and raise." The original hymn is sometimes said to have appeared in Mrs. H. Mayo's Selection of Hymns, &c, 1838, but this is an error. [William T. Brooke]
