Tune: STUDY
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 In the school-room while we stay,
There is work enough to do,
Study, study through the day--
Keep our lessons all in view.
There's no time to waste or lose,
Every moment we should use
For the hours are gliding fast,
Soon our school day will be past.

2 Here, then, let us early sow
While we're in our opening youth,
Seed that will take root and grow--
Seed of knowledge, virtue, truth;
For the time is coming, when
Woman we shall be, and men.
Then, O then we'll need it all,
In discharging duty's call.
