1. Oh happy, happy Children's Day!
Again we welcome thee;
Another year has passed away,
Once more thy joys we see.
Cold winter now is past and gone
Its frost and chilly blast;
We hail this bright and happy morn,
'Tis Children's Day at last.
Hail, hail, happy morn!
Welcome Children's Day;
Sing, sing the joyful song,
Bid sorrow flee away
Let us all our voices raise,
And the heavenly Father praise,
On this day, on this day,
This happy Children's Day.
2. The birds are singing in the trees,
How green the shady bowers!
Sweet perfume floats upon the breeze
From summer's sweetest flowers.
All Nature sings a gladsome song,
Dark clouds have rolled away;
Join in the chorus loud and strong,
'Tis happy Children's Day. [Chorus]
3. Oh happy, happy Children's Day!
Once more we greet thee here,
Thou art the best, we sometimes say,
Of days in all the year.
But as the seasons come and go
Untold Heaven's love,
Each day brings joy to those who know
The peace of God above. [Chorus]
