Hymn 53 • Come ye children of the kingdom
HYMN 53. P. M.
 
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 Savior 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 Savior,
Keep his law and do his will,
That I may enjoy forever,
Happiness on Zion’s hill.
 
Hymn 54 • Jesus, mighty King of Zion
HYMN 54. P. M.
 
1 Jesus, mighty King in Zion,
Thou alone our guide shalt be; [p. 70]
