1 We bring no glitt’ring treasures,—
No gems from earth’s deep mine;
We come, with cheerful measures
To chant Thy love divine.
Children, Thy favors sharing,
Their voice of thanks would raise;
O Lord, accept our off’ring,—
Our song of grateful praise.
Sing! sing! joyously sing
Grateful hosannas to Jesus, our King!
Sing! sing! joyously sing!
Praises unceasing bring.
2 The dearest gifts of heaven,
Love’s written word of truth;
To us is early given
To guide our steps in youth.
We hear the wond’rous story,—
The tale of Calvary;
We read of homes in glory,
From sin and sorrow free. [Refrain]
3 Redeemer, great thy blessing,
Oh, teach us how to pray;
That each, Thy fear possessing,
May tread life’s onward way.
Then where the pure are dwelling,
We hope to meet again;
And sweet the number swelling,
Forever praise Thy name. [Refrain]
