Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)


Let hearts and hands be joined in one,
While cheer­ful voices raise
To Him, our Sav­ior, Lord and king,
Another song of praise.


We thank Him for our Sab­bath home,
And all our friends so dear;
We thank Him for the bliss­ful day
That crowns our op­en­ing year.

O may we love Him more and more,
And serve Him as we ought;
And may we prize the sim­ple truth,
These gentle flow­ers have taught.


We want to live for Him alone,
While yet on earth we stay;
To follow out the Gold­en Rule,
And its com­mands ob­ey.
