Hymn/Song Information

Far round the world Thy children sing




Far round the world
Thy children sing their song:
From East and West
their voices sweetly blend,
Praising the Lord in whom
young lives are strong,
Jesus our Guide, our Hero,
and our Friend.


Guide of the pilgrim
clambering to the height,
Hero on whom our
fearful hearts depend,
Friend of the wanderer
yearning for the light,
Jesus, our guide, our hero,
and our friend.


Where Thy wide ocean,
wave on rolling wave,
Beats through the ages,
on each island shore,
They praise their Lord,
whose hand alone can save,
Whose sea of love
surrounds them evermore.


Thy sun-kissed children
on earth’s spreading plain,
Where Asia’s rivers
water all the land,
Sing, as they watch
Thy fields of glowing grain,
Praise to the Lord
who feeds them with His hand.


Still there are lands
where none have seen Thy face,
Children whose hearts
have never shared Thy joy;
Yet Thou wouldst pour
on these Thy radiant grace,
Give Thy glad strength
to every girl and boy.


All round the world
let children sing Thy song:
From East and West
their voices sweetly blend,
Praising the Lord
in whom young lives are strong,
Jesus our Guide, our Hero,
and our Friend.
