1. Hark! hark! the song from youthful voices breaking,
Fresh from the heart its tuneful numbers flow;
How sweet the song of happy children marching,
Praising the Savior as they onward go.

Hark! hark! the song of holy adoration,
Glory to Jesus, our eternal king;
Praise ye His name, exalt Him in the highest,
Now and forever shall the anthem ring.

2. Hark! hark! the song, the grand old story telling,
Oh, how it swells and echoes far away;
Life, love and joy, through Him who hath redeemed us,
Freely is offered in His name today. [Refrain]

3. Sing, children sing; the song you now are waking,
Long, long ago on Judah’s plain began;
When from the sky was heard the midnight chorus,
Peace from our Father and good-will to men. [Refrain]

4. Sing, children sing, ’till forward still advancing,
Rank after rank the royal standard wave;
Sing, gladly sing, the wonders of His greatness,
Jesus the mighty One, the Strong to Save. [Refrain]
