1 We meet once more with hearts aflame,
To praise the blessed Saviour’s name,
And while we praise,
This pray’r we’ll raise,
God bless our Sunday School.

Refrain:
God bless our school, our Sunday school,
‘Tis here we learn the golden rule,
Fill us with love
And from above,
God bless our Sunday School.

2 ‘Tis here we come to learn of Thee,
Unclose our eyes that we may see,
Unto each heart
Thy grace impart,
God bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

3 Be in the lesson of today,
And help each teacher, Lord, we pray,
And while they teach,
Still we beseech,
Lord bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

4 Now help the children while they sing
The praises of their Lord and King,
May they to Thee
United be,
Lord bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

5 Be with each heart, be with each home,
Be with us in the years to come,
While still to Thee,
Our pray’r will be,
God bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]
