Now the days are long and happy

Full Text

1 Now the days are long and happy,
We must fill them, Lord, for thee;
Now our hearts are glad and earnest,
Let them also faithful be.

Faithful and true, faithful and true,
Serving God in all we do.
His love abounds to me and you,
Faithful and true, Faithful and true.

2 In the morning when we awaken,
Let our praise to God arise;
And when fall the evening shadows,
Thank him ere we close our eyes. [Refrain]

3 When we go on busy errands,
When we play, and when in school,
Let our faces shine for Jesus,
Let his spirit in us rule. [Refrain]
