Children's Praise

Representative Text

1 Come, let us sing to the Savior above,
Children a tribute should bring;
Sing of His mercy and wonderful love,
He is our Savior and King.

Chorus:
Jesus, Savior!
Help us Thy praises to sing,
Show us Thy favor and teach us Thy way,
Thou art our Savior and King.

2 Once in the temple, in joyful accord,
Children's hosannas were heard;
Here in His courts we would sing to our Lord,
We would rejoice in His word. [Chorus]

3 Let us repeat that sweet story of old,
Jesus the little ones blest;
Still He is waiting in love to enfold
All who would lean on His breast. [Chorus]

4 Guard us from danger, and save us from sin,
Jesus, Redeemer and Friend,
We are Thy children, oh, cleanse us within.
Guide us, and keep to the end. [Chorus]
