Representative Text

1 How pleasant is the Sabbath school,
With joy we enter there,
Where little children learn to sing
The hymn of praise and prayer,
Sweet Sabbath school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sabbath home.

2 There sacred songs remind us of
The days when we were young;
When we, like them, at Sabbath school,
The praise of Jesus sung.
Sweet Sabbath school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sabbath home.

3 O holy place! where first we shed
The penitential tear;
Where youthful steps are taught to tread
In paths of peace and prayer.
Sweet Sabbath school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sabbath home.

4 We'll ever love the Sabbath school,
Its toil we'll freely share;
That God will give it great increase,
Shall be our latest prayer.
Sweet Sabbath school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sabbath home.

5 And when our labors here shall end,
We hope in nobler strains
To sing again our Sabbath songs
Where endless Sabbath reigns.
Sweet Sabbath school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sabbath home.
