1 Our hymn of thanks we sing today;
Our hearts and voices raise,
To Him who, with a Father’s love,
Has guided all our ways:
The mercies of another year
Demand our grateful praise.

2 Jesus, accept the thanks we bring,
Unworthy though they be;
Thou didst of old let children sing
Hosannas unto Thee.
We too present our offering,
And join their harmony.

3 Throughout the year we have been blest
With lessons from Thy word,
From teachers dear, who never tire
In working for their Lord,
Our minds to train, our souls to win:
O give them their reward.

4 May we still love the Sunday School;
Still love Thy word and ways;
And wise unto salvation grow,
In these our youthful days;
Then join the blessèd band above,
Who ever sing Thy praise.

5 Lord, smile upon the friends who come
To aid this work of love;
Their offerings graciously accept;
Thy blessing may they prove
A hundred fold—and may we meet
Teachers and friends above.
