1 I hear the children's voices
In tender strains uprise,
Their carols sweetly blending
With hymns beyond the skies.
2 Christ smiled on little children,
And drew them to His breast;
"Of such is Heaven's kingdom,"
Of love, and joy, and rest.
3 They trust, and fear no evil,
Confiding, gentle, kind;
In simple faith, as children,
We happiness may find.
4 They sing their joyous carols,
With lips and hearts as free
As winds, and waves, and sunshine,
Or birds upon the tree.
5 They love the fields and flowers,
The fragrance, and the light;
And all this world of ours
For them is ever bright.
6 They love the name of Jesus,
They trust His tender care,
And all they know of Heaven,
Is - Christ Himself is there.
