[Congregation]
1 Now let our hearts conspire to raise
A cheerful anthem to thy praise:
Let music, sweet as incense, rise
With grateful odours to the skies.

[Children]
2 Teach us to bow before thy face,
Nor let our hearts forget thy grace;
When lost in ignorance we lay,
Thy goodness snatch'd our souls away.

[Congregation]
3 O what a num'rous race we see,
In ignorance and misery!
Shall they continue still to lie
In ignorance and misery!

[Children]
4 Give, Lord, each liberal soul to prove
The joys of thine exhaustless love;
May we the sacred scriptures know,
And like the blessed Jesus grow.

[Congregation]
5 We feel a sympathizing heart;
Lord, 'tis a pleasure to impart;
Hear thou our cry, and pitying see,
O let these children live to thee.
