1 The children of earth are the light of our eyes,
We cheer them with all that our love can devise;
We pray that in growing,
Their thoughts may be going
To the Father that dwells in the skies.

Refrain:
We’re growing,
We’re growing,
For Jesus we’re growing,
The seed we are sowing,
We’re growing,
We’re growing,
For Jesus who dwells in the skies.

2 The children of darkness may boast of their might,
But thanks be to God, we are children of light;
The prodigal craven,
May reach the fair haven,
If repentant he turns to the right. [Refrain]

3 Our Saviour in heaven delights not in scorn,
His features are gentle and bright as the morn;
Our life is His treasure,
Our love is His pleasure,
And He weeps for the child from Him torn. [Refrain]
