On Sabbath morning, oh, how pleasant

On Sabbath morning, oh, how pleasant

Published in 10 hymnals

Representative Text

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.
