Fanny Crosby


Let hearts and hands be joined in one,
While cheerful voices raise
To Him, our Savior, Lord and king,
Another song of praise.


We thank Him for our Sabbath home,
And all our friends so dear;
We thank Him for the blissful day
That crowns our opening year.

O may we love Him more and more,
And serve Him as we ought;
And may we prize the simple truth,
These gentle flowers have taught.


We want to live for Him alone,
While yet on earth we stay;
To follow out the Golden Rule,
And its commands obey.
