School is begun, so come every one

School is begun, so come every one

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 School is begun, so come every one,
And come with smiling faces;
For happy are they who learn when they may,
So come and take your places.

2 Here you will find your teachers are kind,
And with their help succeeding,
The older you grow, the more you will know,
And soon you'll love your reading.

3 Little boys, when you grow to be men,
And fill some useful station,
If you should once be found out as a dunce,
O think of your vexation.

4 Little girls, too, a lesson for you,
To learn is now your duty;
Or no one will deem you worthy esteem,
Whate'er your youth or beauty.
