lyrics

Boys and girls
mice and squirrels
bow your heads
and straighten your curls
quiet all your quick tongues
hold your bodies small
fold your praying hands
and give the greatest song of all
oh holy, oh holy,
holy hallelujah amen
oh holy, oh holy
we will not be frightened
boys and girls
his Calvary
trading toys for artillery
his truth is marching on
let the children right our wrongs
his truth is marching on
we are weak but he is strong
his truth is marching on
hear the children sing this song
oh holy, oh holy
voices sending angels a’ soar
oh holy, oh holy
hallelujah this is our war
we’ve a mission
we’ve permission
from the lord’s almighty law
sending evil down a river in a basket made of straw
