1 How should children spend the day?
Early rise and early pray;

2 Then to breakfast, then away
To labor, or their lesson say;

3 Then to dinner, then to play;
To school again then hie away,

4 Unless it be a holiday;
And when sinks the evening ray,

5 Again to God their duty pay,
And close with prayer the Christian day.
