1 Praise the Lord! praise the Lord!
Happy children now in the temple sing,
Praise the Lord! praise the Lord!
Hosanna to the Lord, our King!
Oh, praise him for the flow’rs that grow,
Oh, praise him for the stars that move;
Praise the Lord here below,
And praise him in his courts above.

2 Love the Lord! love the Lord!
Happy children, give him your youth’s bright days;
Love the Lord! love the Lord!
He ever loveth you, he says.
Oh, love him, for he loves us so;
Oh, love him for his wondrous love;
Love the Lord here below,
And love him in his courts above.

3 Serve the Lord! serve the Lord!
Happy children, serve him with songs of joy;
Serve the Lord! serve the Lord!
And let his work your hands employ.
Oh, serve him whatsoe’er ye do;
Oh, serve him wheresoe’er ye move;
Serve the Lord here below,
And serve him in his courts above.
