Hymn Monday - "Let Children Hear the Mighty Deeds"

Today's Hymn, "Let Children Hear the Mighty Deeds" (#629) is from "The Lutheran Hymnal", (c) 1941 by Concordia Publishing House.

"Let children hear the mighty deeds Which God performed of old,
Which in our younger years we saw, And which our fathers told.

Make unto them His glories known, His works of pow'r and grace;
And we'll convey His wonders down Thro' ev'ry rising race.

Our lips shall tell them to our sons And they again to theirs
That generations yet unborn May teach them to their heirs.

Oh, teach them with all diligence The truths of God's own Word,
To place in Hiim their confidence, to fear and trust their Lord

To learn that in our God alone Their hope securely stands,
That they may ne'er forget His works, But walk in His commands."

Jesu Juva,
Soli Deo Gloria
