We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Sweet Sunday school, place dear to me

Sweet Sunday school, place dear to me

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Sweet Sunday-school, place dear to me,
Where'er through life I roam,
My heart will often turn to thee,
My childhood's Sunday-school.

The Sunday-school, The Sunday-school,
Oh! 'tis the place I love,
For there I learn the golden rule,
Which leads to joys above.

2 Within thy courts of Him I've heard,
Whose birth the angels sung,
When o'er the shepherds, fill'd with fear,
The star of glory hung. [Chorus]

3 When all our wand'rings here shall cease,
And cares of life shall end,
In God's eternal dwelling-place,
May we our anthems blend. [Chorus]
