Representative Text

1 Once again with delight we gather,
In the dear Sabbath home that we love;
And we list to the words so precious,
From the lips of our Saviour above.

Refrain:
Precious words, loving words,
How they shine along our way,
Like a lamp, bright and clear,
When our hearts their truth obey.

2 Once again with delight we gather,
In the dear Sabbath home that we love,
And we read in the Holy Bible
Precious words from our Saviour above. [Refrain]

3 Once again, with our friends and teachers,
Happy songs of devotion we sing;
Still we think of the words so precious,
And the joy and the comfort they bring. [Refrain]

4 Now we ask for our Father’s blessing
On our faithful instructors to fall;
That the fruit of the seed they scatter
May be seen in the lives of us all. [Refrain]
