Representative Text

1 Bright and early in our places,
Happy hearts so cheerful now,
Faces all aglow with gladness,
Humbly we together bow.

Refrain:
Merry, cheery happy faces,
How we love our Sabbath School;
Merry, cheery happy faces,
How we love our Sabbath School.

2 Cloudy, sunshine, rainy, snowing,
Onward thro’ this life we go,
Lessons hard and harder growing,
Ev’ry day brings work you know. [Refrain]

3 Life, they say, is full of sadness,
But if Jesus be our friend,
Ev’ry day’ll be full of gladness,
And our joy shall never end. [Refrain]
