Happy Children

Hymns and Songs for Little Saints (1900), 18

1. A band of children free, We join our cheerful voices, Our thoughts with love are raised above, And ev’ry heart rejoices.

Together then we’ll sing; We’ll sing in sweet communion, We’ll sound His praise in joyous lays, For this sweet heavenly union.

2. A happy childhood band, O may we love each other; And may our love like that above, Bind heart with heart together.

Together then we’ll sing; We’ll sing in sweet communion, We’ll sound His praise in joyous lays, For this sweet heavenly union.

3. Where loved hearts meet as one, To crave the Savior’s blessing; There will He rest and make them blest, Sweet peace and joy possessing.

Together then we’ll sing; We’ll sing in sweet communion, We’ll sound His praise in joyous lays, For this sweet heavenly union.

4. And when at last we stand, Beyond the wild, dark river; With hand in hand, a glorious band, We’ll join and sing forever.

Together then we’ll sing; We’ll sing in sweet communion, We’ll sound His praise in joyous lays, For this sweet heavenly union.
