High above the cloudless sky,
Where they see their heavenly king,
In His holy majesty.

When to Sion Je­sus rode;
And the stately temple rang
With hosannas to their God.

Jesus loves an infant’s voice,
And the praises children bring.

Let sing us our hymns below!
Sing at morn, at noon, at ev’n,
Till, through Je­sus Christ, we go
Sweeter songs to sing in Heav’n.
