Praise the name of Christ in Heaven,
Children sing with glad acclaim;
Praise Him duly, serve Him truly,
Spread abroad His glorious fame;
He so kingly, we so lowly,
We so sinful, He so holy;
Yet He, self forgetting, hears us
When we call upon His name.

Refrain

Glad hallelujahs,
Joyful we bring to Jesus our king;
Glad hallelujahs
Be Thine forevermore;
Glad hallelujahs,
Joyful we bring to Jesus our king;
Glad hallelujahs
Be Thine forevermore.

Praise Him in the early morning,
When by rest refreshed anew;
Nature waking, praise is making,
Let us humbly worship, too;
We so feeble, He so glorious,
He o’er sin and death victorious;
By the hand He kindly leads us
All our earthly journey through.

Refrain

Praise Him when the day is ending,
When the weary need repose;
Seek His blessing, sin confessing,
Ere in sleep the eyelids close;
While in safety we are sleeping
He is loving vigil keeping;
Oh, adore Him, kneel before Him
As His children, not His foes.

Refrain
