Lord This Day Thy Children Meet
Author: William Malsham How
1. Lord, this day Thy children meet
In Thy courts with willing feet;
Unto Thee this day we raise
Grateful hearts in hymns of praise.
2. Not alone the day of rest
With Thy worship shall be blest;
In our pleasure and our glee,
Lord, we would remember Thee.
3. Help us unto Thee to pray,
Hallowing our happy day,
From Thy presence thus to win
Hearts all pure and free from sin.
4. All our pleasures here below,
Saviour, from Thy mercy flow:
Little children Thou dost love;
Draw our hearts to Thee above.
5. Make, O Lord, our childhood shine
With all lowly grace, like Thine;
Then through all eternity
We shall live in heaven with Thee.
