1 Little voices, happy voices,
Sing of Jesus and his love,
While the angels bending o’er us
Whisper softly from above,β€”

Oh, believe him, Oh, receive him,
Your Redeemer kind and true!
How he loves you! yes, he loves you
More than all your friends can do.

2 Little voices, happy voices,
While we praise him day by day,
Lo! the angels hove round us;
In our hearts we hear them say,β€” [Refrain]

3 Little voices, happy voices,
While we breathe his name so dear,
From the Bible, holy Bible,
Still the gentle words we hear,β€”
Little voices, happy voices, [Refrain]

4 Little voices, happy voices,
With our teachers while we sing;
They are telling, sweetly telling,
Of the Lord, our Saviour-King. [Refrain]
