Christ Our King

Representative Text

1 Jesus is the children’s King,
His joyous praises we will sing.
He has left His word our guide
To bring us safely to His side.

We’re coming, sound the strain,
We’re coming, sing again,
Loud the joyful chorus ring,
Children come to Christ their King.

2 We will make no vain delay,
But seek Him early on our way.
He the children’s faithful Friend
Will love us ever to the end. [Chorus]

3 Mansions bright for us to share,
He dwells in glory to prepare.
He will come for us again,
In endless life with Him to reign! [Chorus]
