We're coming to greet you

Representative Text

1 We're coming to greet you in gladness again,
To welcome our parents and friends to us dear,
With sweet songs of pleasure from heart, lip and voice,
We come greeting all with a happy New Year.

Chorus:
We're coming with banners,
With welcome for you,
We're coming in gladness,
With hearts warm and true.

2 We're coming, and telling of mercy and love,
Which God hath smiled down on our country so free,
The bright flag of Freedom in triumph doth wave,
In glory and beauty o'er land and o'er sea. [Chorus]

3 We're coming, and singing of heaven so fair,
Where the songs of the bless'd their Saviour adore;
And children, and teachers united shall share,
The bliss and the glory of Christ evermore. [Chorus]

4 We children are coming, dear teachers to-day,
Our thanks to return for your kindness and love;
To ask that our God would our pastor repay,
With "crowns of rejoicing" bright jeweled above. [Chorus]

5 We're coming and telling the goodness of God,
Whose smile on our pathway has brought us safe here;
We'll join our glad voices in sweet notes of praise,
And ask for each other "a Happy New Year." [Chorus]
