Come, praise your Lord and Savior

Full Text

1. Come, praise your Lord and Saviour
In songs 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 sakes He died.

2. 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 in God's own temple,
In lowly home, like Thee.

3. O Jesus, we too praise Thee,
The lowly maiden's Son;
In Thee all gentlest graces
Are gathered into one.
Oh, give that best adornment
That Christian maid can wear,
The meek and quiet spirit,
Which shone in Thee so fair!

4. O Lord, with voices blended
We sing our songs of praise;
Be Thou the light and pattern
Of all our childhood days.
And lead us ever onward,
That while we stay below,
We may, like Thee, O Jesus,
In grace and wisdom grow.
