Sing on, sing on, ye children

Representative Text

1. Sing on, sing on, ye children,
This is your day for song;
The birds, the flowers praise him,
Your praise to him prolong,
All earth is glad for Jesus,
And children too, may sing.
Our hearts are glad he liveth,
Our praises we will sing.

2. Sing on, sing on, ye children,
And let your glad song rise
In joy and gladness singing,
Till it shall reach the skies;
For Jesus is our Shepherd,
His little lambs are we;
Then let us sing his praises,
And joyful, happy be.

3. Sing on, sing on, ye children,
Sing for the Christ above;
When on the earth he blest us,
And showed for us his love.
May we our whole hearts give him,
Our thot's, our words, our deeds,
And strive to be his children,
To follow where he leads.
