Representative Text

1 We love our home, our Sabbath home,
And the friends that meet us there,
As we come bounding with delight
In their welcome smile to share,
In their welcome smile to share.

Then haste, O haste, let us all be found within our Sabbath dwelling;
Where a calm sweet light ev’ry moment brings,
And our hearts with joy are swelling.

2 We love our home, our Sabbath home,
And the beams that brightly shine,
While we sit list’ning to the words
From the sacred page divine,
From the sacred page divine. [Refrain]

3 We love our home, our Sabbath home,
And we praise our Savior King,
While he bends o’er us from the sky,
And he hears the songs we sing,
And he hears the songs we sing. [Refrain]
