We are happy, trusting in our Father's care,
And He bids us that we come before Him;
We will sing our sweetest songs of praise and pray'r,
And with grateful, happy hearts adore Him.
Here we learn of Jesus and His wondrous love,
Of His mercy and His royal favor;
How he came to earth and left His throne above,
That, for us, He'd be a perfect Saviour.
We are pressing to the home beyond the sky,
Which the faithful Christian shall inherit;
And a mansion there awaits us when we die,
We have learn'd it of the Holy Spirit.
Sweetest praises now we'll sing,
To our Lord and to our King,
Unto Him for all His loving care
To His children ev'rywhere.
