Hymn/Song Information

Come praise your Lord and Saviour




Come, praise your Lord and Savior,
in strains of holy mirth;
give thanks to him, O children,
who lived a child on earth.
He loved the little children
and called them to his side,
his loving arms embraced them,
and for their sake he died.


O Jesus, we would praise thee
with songs of holy joy;
for thou on earth didst sojourn
a pure and spotless boy.
Make us like thee, obedient,
like thee from sin's stains free,
like thee in God's own temple,
in lowly home like thee.


O Jesus, we too praise thee,
the lowly Maiden's Son,
in thee all gentlest graces
are gathered into one.
O give that best adornment
that Christian maid can wear,
the meek and quiet spirit
which shone in thee so fair!


O Lord, with voices blended
we sing our songs of praise;
be thou the light and patter
of all our childhood's days;
and lead us ever onward,
that while we stay below,
we may, like thee, O Jesus,
in grace and wisdom grow.
