Hymn/Song Information

Sing to the Lord the children's hymn




Sing to the Lord the childrenís hymn,
His gentle love declare,
Who bends amid the seraphim
To hear the childrenís prayer.


He at a motherís breast was fed,
Though Godís own Son was He;
He learnt the first small words He said
At a meek motherís knee.


He held us to His mighty breast,
The children of the earth;
He lifted up His hands and blessed
The babes of human birth.


Lo! from the stars His face will turn
On us with glances mild;
The angels of His presence yearn
To bless the little child.


Keep us, O Jesus Lord, for Thee,
That so by Thy dear grace
We, children of the font, may see
Our heavenly Fatherís face.


---Alternative verses---


Close to His loving heart He press'd,
The children of the earth;
He lifted up His hands and bless'd
The babes of human birth.
