Come with happy faces,
To the place of prayer;
Jesus now is waiting;
We shall find Him there.

Refrain

With a grateful spirit,
Now our voices raise;
Thank Him for His goodness,
In a song of praise.

Come with happy faces;
Jesus rose today;
Leave the world behind us,
Seek the narrow way.

Refrain

Come with happy faces,
Come with hearts sincere;
God our thoughts is reading,
He is ever near.

Refrain

Come with happy faces,
Learn the words of truth;
Jesus loves the children;
Trust Him in our youth.

Refrain
