1 On Sabbath morning, O how pleasant
To come to Sabbath school!
Where ev'ry happy child is present,
And ev'ry seat is full.
2 The blessed Bible there engages
Each youthful heart and eye,
To learn of God's own holy pages
The wisdom from on high.
3 And surely He, who feeds the flowers
With heaven's own morning dew,
Will send on our young hearts the showers
Of heavenly blessing, too.
4 Then let us gladly gather round him,
And love him while we may,
For they who seek have always found him,
E'en in their early day.
5 And when life's Sabbaths all are ended,
We all may meet above,
Where he for us hath now ascended,
Our Father's house of love.Source: The New Sabbath School Hosanna: enlarged and improved: a choice collection of popular hymns and tunes, original and selected: for the Sunday school and the family circle... #8b
