Representative Text

1 See the children of our care and love,
As they gather here today;
Hear them singing to the Lord above,
As indeed the children may.

Refrain:
Gladly do we meet the children
In our Sunday school today.
Gladly do we join them as they sing,
In our Sunday school today.

2 Here they listen to the gospel word
That is full of life an truth;
Here we show them how to seek the Lord,
In the days of early youth. [Refrain]

3 They are learning to be good and kind,
As the children all should be;
They are learning how to keep in mind
What the Saviour loves to see. [Refrain]

4 Saviour, hear us from Thy courts above,
Bless the children here today;
Keep and guide them by Thy hand of love,
Lest in sin they go astray. [Refrain]
