With gladsome hearts we come

Representative Text

1 With gladsome hearts we come
within our holy home,
Our Saviour's Name to sing
Oh, well His House we love!
Oh, joy all joys above,
To praise the children's King!

2 The angels sing on high
Thy glory through the sky,
And then to earth they wing;
To guard us while we sleep,
And as their watch they keep,
To praise the children's King.

3 Oh, may we, while we live,
Such willing service give,
A holy offering!
And still Thy glory show
By deeds of love below,
To praise the children's King.

4 And may our hearts aspire
To join the heavenly choir,
Whose strains forever ring;
And learn on earth their hymn,
The song of seraphim
To praise the children's King.

5 O Light of Light, to Thee
Let earth and sky and sea
Eternal homage bring;
And grant us through Thy love,
Before Thy throne above,
To praise the children's King.
