Lord, this day children meet

Full Text

1. Lord, this day Thy children meet
In Thy house with willing feet;
Unto Thee this day they raise
Grateful hearts in hymns of praise.

2. Not alone the day of rest
With Thy worship shall be blest,
In our pleasure and our glee,
Lord, we would remember Thee.

3. All our pleasures here below,
Saviour, from Thy mercy flow,
Little children Thou dost love;
Draw our hearts to Thee above.
