With Gladsome Hearts We Come


With gladsome hearts we come
within our holy home,
Our Saviour’s Name to sing
Oh, well His House we love!
Oh, joy all joys above,
To praise the children’s King!

The angels sing on high
Thy glory through the sky,
And then to earth they wing;
To guard us while we sleep,
And as their watch they keep,
To praise the children’s King.

Oh, may we, while we live,
Such willing service give,
A holy offering!
And still Thy glory show
By deeds of love below,
To praise the children’s King.

And may our hearts aspire
To join the heavenly choir,
Whose strains forever ring;
And learn on earth their hymn,
The song of seraphim
To praise the children’s King.

O Light of Light, to Thee
Let earth and sky and sea
Eternal homage bring;
And grant us through Thy love,
Before Thy throne above,
To praise the children’s King.
