Full Text

1 'Tis children's day; from heart to heart,
Let joy, let joy responsive ring;
While here we come with grateful love
To praise the children's King.
While summer flow'rs their incense breathe,
And birds with rapture sing,
We tune our souls to higher strains,
And praise the children's King.

Chorus:
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Still let the temple chorus ring;
Hosanna to Jesus,
He is the children's King.

2 For smiling hills where stately trees
Their shade, their cooling shade expand;
For brooks that course through meadows green
And glide on ev'ry hand;
For founts of knowledge purer far
Than rill or mountain spring;
For wisdom's light our steps to guide,
We praise the children's King. [Chorus]
