Merry, Merry Children, Sweetly Sing

Sing with Me (1969), p. G-8

1. Merry, merry children, sweetly sing Of the happy days that the seasons bring; Each in its robes doth gaily appear, The hearts of the children to comfort and cheer.

Merry, merry children, sweetly sing Of the happy days that the seasons bring; Merry, merry children, sweetly sing Of the happy days that the seasons bring.
