Representative Text

1 How happy the children who trust in the Lord,
Receiving with meekness the truth of his Word;
Who tell of a Savior wherever they go,
And try to bring others his goodness to know.

Their path will grow brighter, their hearts will grow lighter,
As onward they journey along;
The Lord will be with them, His grace he will give them,
And fill them with rapture and song.

2 How happy the children who honor his laws,
Who live for his glory and work for his cause;
His hand will protect them what ever betide,
The lamp of his mercy their footsteps will guide. [Refrain]

3 How happy the children who dwell in his love,
And follow the wisdom that comes from above;
To them is the promise when labor is o’er,
Of treasures unfading and life evermore. [Refrain]
