1 Far above in highest heaven,
Jesus reigns, our Lord and King;
He His life for us has given,
He did life eternal bring:
Sing, then, children, sing with gladness,
Loud let grateful anthems ring;
Jesus is the children’s Saviour,
Jesus is the children’s King.

2 Once on earth the children praised Him,
And “hosanna” was their cry;
Now that God to heav’n has raised Him,
Loud they praise Him in the sky:
Shout, then children, shout your praises,
Loud let grateful anthems ring;
Jesus is the children’s Saviour,
Jesus is the children’s King.

3 Come, then, early, come to Jesus,
As the children did of old:
He from sin and sorrow frees us,
Never will His love grow cold:
Daily let us learn to love Him,
Daily let us join to sing:
Praises to our Lord and Saviour,
Praises to the children’s King.

4 Then, when life’s short days are ended,
If we’ve served our Saviour well,
By His angels gently tended,
In His kingdom we shall dwell;
There we’ll shout our joyous praises,
There the song of vict’ry sing:
Jesus is our Lord and Saviour,
Jesus is the children’s King.
