Hymn 151
8 7 8 7
1. Come ye children of the kingdom,
Sing with me for joy to-day:
Gather round as Christ's disciples,
Kneel with grateful hearts and pray.

2. There's a line contained in Matthew,
What the Saviour said to John,
And the sacred words from heaven,
This is my beloved Son.

3. As 'twas said to Nicodemus,
So I must be born again;
'Tis by water and the Spirit
I the promise may obtain.

4. So I will obey the Saviour,
Keep his law, and do his will,
That I may enjoy for ever,
Happiness of Zion's hill.
