Representative Text

1 Hark, the birds and brooklets singing!
Hark, the breezes soft reply!
Children, join the song of nature;—
Singing praise to God on high.

Refrain:
Hark, the blossoms seem to whisper
“Think of all your Father’s love.”
Hark, the bird-notes seem to echo,
“Lift a song to God above.”

2 Bend and watch the dainty flowers,
Soft and low they seem to say;—
“God hath made us silent preachers,
Sing His praise on Children’s Day.” [Refrain]

3 List the music from the tree tops,
soft the leafy fingers play.
‘Tis the wind harp’s gentle music
Praising God on Children’s Day. [Refrain]

4 Children, heed these many voices,
Lift your hearts in earnest praise,
To the Lover of the children
Who with blessings crowns your days. [Refrain]
