1. We are gathered today in our Sunday school,
With our hearts full of grateful praise;
We rejoice, we rejoice, as we hither come,
That the Lord doth direct our ways.

Refrain
We would join in the song of welcome:
Welcome one and all today!
Let us strive with our might e’er to do the right,
And to seek for the lambs astray.

2. We would go forth with zeal in our Master’s name,
And would bring many wand’rers in;
We would tell them of Christ, who from glory came,
E’en to save them from death and sin. [Refrain]

3. One and all with a will let us work today,
To restore to the Lord His own;
Leading souls to the bright and the shining way,
Serving Jesus, and Him alone. [Refrain]
