Representative Text

1 Blessed Sabbath, source of pleasure,
Bright the hours and free from care;
Joys they bring us without measure,
Purest joys that all may share.

Refrain:
We are happy, yes, we’re happy;
Every rule we will obey;
We are happy, O, so happy,
In our Sunday School today.

2 Pleasant smiles and friendly greetings,
Sweetest hymns of love and praise,
Precious lessons, too, repeating,
Make the Sabbath best of days. [Refrain]

3 All these earthly Sabbaths ended,
Joys immortal will be giv’n;
And our songs, with angels blended,
Swell the harmony of heav’n. [Refrain]
