Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Our Sunday-school, how sweet, how dear
To meet and learn of Jesus here;
To read his word, whose ev’ry line
Is full of hope and joy divine.

Refrain:
Our blessed Sunday-school,
Our bright and happy home,
Within thy peaceful dome
We love, we love to come;
Our thoughts will cling to thee,
And still our prayer will be,
That God may bless and keep our Sunday-school.

2 Our Sunday-school, where all may sing
Glad songs of praise to God our King,
And youthful hearts may find the way
To perfect peace and endless day. [Refrain]

3 Our school is like a garden fair,
Where plants are trained with tender care
To bloom for him, The Lord of all,
Whose loving smiles like sunbeams fall. [Refrain]

4 Our Sunday-school, whose golden hours
From Eden bring refreshing showers,
In thee on earth we learn to live,
For thee our thanks to God we give. [Refrain]
