Full Text

1 Children singing, sweet bells ringing!
Welcome, welcome, happy day!
Pray'rs of thousands now are winging
Up to heav'n their silent way.

Welcome, welcome, joyous welcome;
Teachers, scholars, welcome here!

2 'Tis an hour of happy meeting,
We have met for praise and pray'r;
But the hour is short and fleeting;
This is why we're early here. [Chorus]

3 We'll not keep our teachers waiting,
While we tarry by the way,
Nor disturb the school reciting,
'Tis the holy Sabbath day. [Chorus]
