1 Dear friends, with joy we meet you here.
On this our festive day;
To thank God for the Sunday-school,
O join our simple lay.

The Sunday-school, the Sunday-school,
God bless our Sunday-school,
For there I learn the golden rule,
In our dear Sunday-school.

2 'Tis there we learn how Jesus died,
To save our ruin'd race;
How he was mock'd and crucified,
That we might share his grace. [Chorus]

3 While teachers look to God in pray'r,
His blessing to impart,
Oh may the lessons taught us there
Be graven on each heart. [Chorus]

4 When spring with verdure clothes the scene,
When summer breezes blow,
'Mid winter's snows and tempests keen,
To Sunday-school we'll go. [Chorus]
