Dear Savior, from Thy throne above,Where countless children bow,Oh, let Thy loving eye beholdAnd bless us children now.
Our hearts in tuneful numbers wake,Our tongues with rapture sing,All glory, honor, praise to Thee,Redeemer, Lord and King!
Thy mercy led us thro’ the yearThat sweetly passed away,And thro’ Thy grace we gather nowTo hail our festive day.
Oh, may we learn in early youthThy holy Word to prize,The lamp that guides our feet to Heav’n,Our home beyond the skies.
Oh, happy thought, if, faithful here,We work and watch and pray,We’ll spend with Thee in Heav’n at lastAn endless happy day.
