1 Growing up for Jesus,
We are truly blest.
In his smile is welcome;
In his arms our rest.
In his truth our treasure;
In his love our rule.
Growing up for Jesus,
In our Sunday-school.

Refrain:
Growing up for Jesus,
Till in him complete;
Growing up for Jesus.
Oh, his work is sweet,
Growing up for Jesus,
Till in him complete;
Growing up for Jesus.
Oh, his work is sweet.

2 Not too young to love him,
Little hearts beat true.
Not too young to serve him
As the dewdrops do.
Not too young to praise him,
Singing as we come;
Not too young to answer
When he calls us home. [Refrain]

3 Growing up for Jesus;
Learning day by day
How to follow onward
In the narrow way.
Seeking holy treasure,
Finding precious truth;
Growing up for Jesus
In our happy youth. [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
