364. Let Children Hear the Mighty Deeds

1 Let children hear the mighty deeds
which God performed of old;
which in our younger years we saw,
and which our fathers told.

2 He bids us make his glories know,
his works of pow'r and grace;
and we'll convey his wonders down
through ev'ry rising race.

3 Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
and they again to theirs;
that generations yet unborn
may teach them to their heirs.

4 Thus shall they learn in God alone
their hope securely stands,
that they may ne'er forget his works,
but practice his commands.
