Here again our friends we meet,
Bringing flowers rich and sweet,
Laying them at Jesus’ feet,
On this children’s day.

Refrain

This is happy children’s day,
Children’s day, children’s day;
Hear the brook and fountain say,
This is children’s day.

Gleaners all and glad are we,
Faithful toilers full of glee,
Bringing hearts and songs to Thee,
On this children’s day.

Refrain

As these flowers of beauteous hue,
May our lives be pure and true,
Fragrant actions may we do,
From this children’s day.
