1 Promptly on time we’ll gather in our places,
Every Sabbath, rain or clear;
O let us come, with happy smiling faces
Greet our teachers dear.

Promptly, promptly,
Keep in mind the watchword,
Never late to Sunday School;
Always on time, promptly on time—
This shall be our rule.

2 Promptly on time to sing the opening chorus,
Time to bow our heads in prayer;
O what a feast of joy is spread before us;
Then on time be there. [Refrain]

3 See how the clock, still faithful in its duty,
Points whene’er the hour comes round;
So in the path that leads to life and beauty,
May we all be found. [Refrain]
