Blessed Sunday school

Representative Text

1. We joyfully come on this hallowed day
This day of rest so sweet;
We gather to study, to sing and pray
To learn at Jesus' feet.

Oh, blessed Sunday School!
Oh, blessed Sunday School!
Thy welcome voice we gladly hear,
It fills our hearts with love and cheer;
Oh, blessed Sunday School!
Oh, blessed Sunday School!
We joyfully raise, our songs of praise,
Within thy gates so dear.

2. We gather today in our Sunday School,
And lift our hearts above;
Today we will practice the Golden Rule,
And show our Saviour's love. [Chorus]

3. Our superintendent we'll help today
Our love to him we'll show;
The words of our teacher we will obey,
And strive the truth to know. [Chorus]
