Our Sabbath home

Full Text

1 Dear Father bless us e’er we part
From this, our Sabbath home;
And may Thy boundless love be with
Us, everywhere we roam.

Refrain:
Our dear, dear, Sabbath home,
No matter where we roam,
God bless to us our Sunday School,
Beloved Sabbath home.

2 We pray Thee for Thy watchful care
Throughout the coming week,
At work, or play, at home, or school
May we Thy blessing seek. [Refrain]

3 And when another Sabbath day
Shall come by Heav’nly grace,
O Father grant that one and all
May meet in this dear place. [Refrain]
