1 Sweet Sabbath School! more dear to me
Than fairest palace dome,
My heart e'er turns with joy to thee,
My own dear Sabbath Home.

Chorus:
Sabbath home! blessed home!
Sabbath home! blessed home!
My heart o'er turns with joy to thee,
My own dear Sabbath Home.

2 Here first my wilful, wand'ring heart,
The way of life was shown,
Here first I sought the better part,
And gained a Sabbath Home. [Chorus]

3 Here Jesus stood with loving voice,
Entreating me to come,
And make of Him my only choice,
In this dear Sabbath Home. [Chorus]
