201. Come, children, join to sing

1 Come, children, join to 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
to us He'll blessing send;
His love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!

3 Praise yet the Lord again,
Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain,
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore
His goodness we’ll adore,
singing for evermore,
Alleluia! Amen!
