1 Our loving hearts, O Savior, dear,
We bring Thee on this Christmas morn,
And close to Thee would now draw near
And bless the day when thou wast born.

Refrain:
Oh, smile, dear Savior, on us now
As at Thy feet we humbly bow!

2 Our songs, our sweetest songs, to Thee
O King of Kings, we now would raise,
And fill the air with melody
And hymn Thy ever glorious praise. [Refrain]

3 Our lives we now would yield to Thee,
Thy cross would bear, Thy will obey,
And serve Thee ever loyally
Until our lives shall pass away. [Refrain]

4 Our hand we put within Thine own,
Our hand of faith, Thy hand of love;
Oh, leave us not to walk alone,
But guide us to our home above. [Refrain]
