1 Let children hear the mighty deeds
Which God performed of old,
Which in our younger days we saw,
And which our parents told.
2 So make to them His glories known,
His works of pow'r and grace;
And we'll convey His wonders down
Through ev'ry rising race.
3 Our sons and daughters we shall tell
And they again to theirs
That generations yet unborn
May teach them to their heirs.
4 [Protected by copyright]
5 To learn that in our God alone
Their hope securely stands,
That they may never doubt His love
But walk in His commands.
