1 Remember thy great Creator,
Think of His mighty love!
Think of His home above!
Remember in life’s bright morning,
Ever to give your grateful love to Him.
All the sounds of life from creation are calling thee,
To worship thy Creator and King,
All His silent works show His wonderful pow’r and tho’t,
O join thou, as His praises they sing!

Refrain:
Ye children, oh, come to Jesus!
Give Him your early years,
Tell Him your hopes and fears,
Ye children, oh come to Jesus!
He will reveal to you the Father’s love.

2 Remember thy loving Father,
Ever He cares for thee,
Patiently tenderly,
Remember His gift of Jesus,
Out of His boundless love for thee, for me!
He is loving thee, He is guiding and helping thee,
O, think thou of that wonderful love!
He will comfort thee, He will ever thy keeper be,
Oh, serve Him till He calls thee above! [Refrain]

3 Remember thy loving Saviour,
He will thy Pilot be,
Over life’s troubled sea,
Remember His love on Calv’ry,
Out of eternity He calleth thee.
He is calling thee; He is whispering “Come to Me!”
O heed now as He calleth today!
Turn ye not away from the One who is calling thee!
But follow where He leadeth alway. [Refrain]
