1 Have you ever heard the story
That the Holy Father tells,
To His angels there in glory,
Of His children, loved so well?

O, be glad, ye children,
Blessèd little children,
Yes, be glad, ye children,
For Jesus loves you well.

2 All the angels cease their singing,
While they hear the Father tell
Of His darling Son so willing
To redeem the souls that fell. [Refrain]

3 Then the happy angels winging
Bright their way thro’ realms above,
Listened to the children, singing,
Of the dear Redeemer’s love. [Refrain]

4 Back they flew to thrones all shining,
And from golden harp strings rang
Sweetest music, ever shining,
With the song the children sang. [Refrain]
