Tune: WAKE AND SING
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Wake and sing! children, sing!
Virtue's sons should ever
Happy, happy be;
Naught should them discover
From their merry glee.
Wake and sing! children, sing!
Heav'n itself with kindest pleasure,
Lists to hear our joyful measure:
Wake and sing! children, sing!
O, what a lovely thing
It is to learn to sing,
And chant our Saviour's praise,
Our sweet enjoyment here
Makes every moment dear,
While chanting these sweet lays.

Chorus:
Will you, will you, will you, will you
come to singing school?
Will you, will you, will you, will you
come to singing school?

2 Wake and sing! children, sing!
Ever let us cherish,
Deeds of love and truth.
So when time shall perish,
Fresh shall be our youth,
Wake and sing! children, sing!
Sing, O sing, a day is near us
When eternal joy shall cheer us.
Wake and sing! children, sing!
O, what a lovely thing
It is to learn to sing,
And chant our Saviour's praise,
Our sweet enjoyment here
Makes every moment dear,
While chanting these sweet lays. [Chorus]
