185. Come, children, join to sing

1 Come, children, join and sing
alleluia! amen!
loud praise to Christ our king,
alleluia! amen!
let all, with heart and voice,
before his throne rejoice;
praise is his gracious choice:
alleluia! amen!

2 Come, lift your hearts on high,
alleluia! amen!
let praises fill the sky;
alleluia! amen!
he is our guide and friend,
on him we can depend;
his love shall never end:
alleluia! amen!

3 Sing praises loud and long;
alleluia! amen!
life shall not end the song;
alleluia! amen!
on heaven's blissful shore
his goodness we'll adore,
singing for evermore,
alleluia! amen!
