Representative Text

1 We are marching to the heav’nly land
Guided by the Saviour’s mighty hand,
Who is Captain of our pilgrim band
And who blesses little children.

Refrain:
Sweetest strains of music fill the air,
Telling of the Lord’s unfailing care,
For His chosen people everywhere,
And His love for little children.

2 Every time we labor in God’s name,
Every song of praise our tongues proclaim,
We rejoice to know that Jesus came
For the sake of little children. [Refrain]

3 Christ is in our midst this happy day,
And He promises if we’ll obey,
He will guard and guide us all the way
To His home for little children. [Refrain]
