Representative Text

1 We are children, happy children,
Singing, singing as we go.
'T is our Father's hand that leads us,
When a sinful world around us
Tempts our little feet to stray,
By his Spirit he will keep us
In the straight and narrow way.

2 If we try to follow Jesus,
Try to serve him here below,
Where he lives and reigns forever,
Singing, singing we shall go.
We are children, happy children,
Singing, singing as we go;
'Tis our Father's hand that leads us,
Leads us through this world below.
