Representative 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]
