Representative Text

Chorus:
We'll not neglect the Sunday School,
The pleasant, holy, blessed place,
For there of Jesus' love we learn,
And how to run the heav'nly race

1 'Tis there we learn to understand
God's holy word, the book of truth
And guided by the light it gives,
We find the way of life in youth. [Chorus]

2 We'll not neglect the Sunday School,
Where cheerful voices join in song,
But prize it far above our play,
Nor think the time we spend there long. [Chorus]

3 We'll not neglect the Sunday School,
Tho' tempted oft to stay away,
For if not there we might indulge,
In idleness and sinful play. [Chorus]

4 We'll not neglect the Sunday School,
Nor be content that we may go,
But try to bring in others too,
And save them from a world of woe. [Chorus]
