Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 Again ’tis holy Sabbath day,
And we have met to sing and pray;
To learn thro’ tender words of love
The blessèd precepts from above.

Oh, we would feel the gentle power
That consecrates this holy hour;
Come, sacred power, around us twine,
And help us live the life divine.

2 Kind teachers, parents, children dear,
In union sweet all mingle here;
The Savior dear is with us, too,
And all may feel His presence true. [Refrain]

3 Thou loving Savior, teacher kind,
Help us the narrow way to find;
Thou art the truth, the life, the way.
Then may we Thy commands obey. [Refrain]
