Bells are ringing, children singing,
Joyous music fills the air;
Children’s day to all is bringing,
From the Sav­ior, blessings rare.


Praise Him, praise Him, all creation,
Ceaseless praise to Him outpour;
Fill the skies with jubilation;
Praise the Lord for­ev­er­more.

Gather ’round Him, young and hoary,
Praise Him for this day of days;
Spread abroad His matchless glo­ry,
Sing with heart and voice His praise.


Lay your gifts of love before Him;
Children, sit ye at His feet;
Let your happy soul adore Him—
Christ whose love gives joy complete.
