Our festive song

Full Text

1. We welcome with delight
Another happy day,
Our hearts like merry bells
Ring out the silver lay;
We catch the rosy beams
Reflected from the eye
Of Him whose wonders fill the earth,
Whose glory fills the sky.

Another year has gone,
Another year begun;
To our Redeemer glory be
For all His love for me.
We thank His holy name
For all His tender care,
We praise Him for the Sunday School,
And faithful teachers there.

2. Cold winter flies away,
The blushing, fairy spring
Comes tripping o’er the lees,
While birds are on the wing;
And now, a merry throng,
We come as glad as they;
Our banners waving in the air,
We hail our festive day. [Refrain]

3. The straight and narrow path
O may we early find,
And try to serve the Lord
With heart, and soul, and mind;
O what a happy day,
And one that ne’er shall end,
In that bright world where angels sing,
We all with Him may spend! [Refrain]
