1. We come with happy greetings,
To all the children’s throng;
And to their Sabbath meetings,
We bear the gift of song;
The songs of great salvation,
The strains of jubilee!
Of praise and exaltation,
The shouts of sacred glee!

With happy greetings bringing,
We come, we come!
We welcome thee with singing
To this our Sabbath home;
With happy greetings bringing,
We welcome thee with singing,
While Jesus’ praise is ringing,
In this our Sabbath home!

2. No chords of plaint or sadness,
The children’s hearts should know;
But joyful notes of gladness,
From youthful lips should flow;
Hosannas happy filling
Your temple-arches high,
Until the music thrilling
Sweeps far above the sky![Refrain]

3. With happy greeting blending,
This prayer to God ascends:
That while our songs are wending
From lips of youthful friends,
Their hearts be e’er repeating
The songs of grace and love,
Until with happy greeting,
We meet in bliss above![Refrain]
