Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

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.
