1 Have you ever heard the story
That the Holy Father tells,
To His angels there in glory,
Of His children, loved so well?

Refrain:
O, be glad, ye children,
Blessèd little children,
Yes, be glad, ye children,
For Jesus loves you well.

2 All the angels cease their singing,
While they hear the Father tell
Of His darling Son so willing
To redeem the souls that fell. [Refrain]

3 Then the happy angels winging
Bright their way thro’ realms above,
Listened to the children, singing,
Of the dear Redeemer’s love. [Refrain]

4 Back they flew to thrones all shining,
And from golden harp strings rang
Sweetest music, ever shining,
With the song the children sang. [Refrain]
