Representative Text

1 O Lord, we thank Thee for the zeal
That prompted those of old,
To children Jesus to reveal,
His love for them unfold.

Refrain:
We praise Thee for Thy precious Word
That guides us on our way,
The sweetest message ever heard,
That cheers us day by day.

2 We thank Thee for the faith they showed,
Their patience, courage, art,
For talent, time and love bestowed
To teach the dear child’s heart. [Refrain]

3 We praise Thee for the precious seed
That thus was freely sown;
For souls thus snatched from Satan’s greed,
And made for e’er Thine own. [Refrain]

4 We praise Thee for the Bible taught
So many precious years;
For all the good the learners wrought
In busy life’s careers. [Refrain]

5 We pray Thee for the faith and love
That move these servants rare;
That when we come to Thee above,
We may Thy glory share. [Refrain]
