Representative Text

1 We come, we come with happy hearts,
This day to celebrate,
To speak and sing of Him we love,
His mercies to relate.

Sing on, sing on, Oh! joyfully sing
With merriest hearts, to Jesus our King;
We’re following on obeying His voice;
United and loving, we ever rejoice.

2 We thank Him for the happy past,
For love shown us anew,
And if our skies be overcast,
We’ll trust His love so true. [Refrain]

3 We cannot go beyond His care,
Whatever be our lot,
And pray’r and praise thro’out our days,
Shall never be forgot. [Refrain]
