Looking for the hymn beginning with or containing the line "Bring your sons and daughters..."    Probably a baptismal hymn.

Well, this has the required phrase, but it seems unlikely it would be the one you want:

From The Methodist Sunday-School Hymn-Book (London: Wesleyan-Methodist Sunday-School Union, 1879), page 441:

552 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound.—Leviticus xxv. 9.
8 7.8 7.8 7.

1. Hark! the joyous sound is swelling,
Hark! the song of jubilee;
Of the Saviour's triumphs telling,
Of His conquests yet to be;
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Christ shall reign from sea to sea.

2. Christian Missions! they were founded
Heathen nations to release;
Faithful men went forth and sounded
The glad trump proclaiming peace;
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Never shall the tidings cease.

3. Rich has been the tide of blessing,
Loud the song of liberty,
Light has pierced the Indian's dwelling,
Afric's sons have been set free:
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Saviour, we rejoice in Thee.

4. See the Gospel banner waving
Where the Hindu's temple stood;
See the isles of Fiji craving
For the bread of life as food:
Jubilate! Jubilate!
They no longer thirst for blood.

5. Wider fields are still before us
Where to sow the precious seed;
And that seed from heaven's rich storehouse
Will supply the world's vast need:
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Onward let the work proceed.

6. Bring your offerings, Christians, bring them,
Bring your offerings, rich and poor;
Bring your sons and daughters, bring them;
Let them enter every door:
Jubilate! Jubilate!
Spread the tidings more and more.

Anyone know "Bring your sons and bring your daughters..." using the melody of "Ode to Joy"?
