We must thank our Father

Representative Text

1. We must thank our Father dear
For this Sabbath morning,
For the time he gives us here
From the Bible learning.

We will learn, we will learn
All the lessons taught us;
Then each Sabbath we will know
More and more of Jesus.

2. We must learn like him to be,
Always kind and loving;
Those around us then will see
From his Word we're learning. [Chorus]

3. We will try to keep this day,
Put away our playing,
Sing and study, read and pray,
Holy Sabbath keeping. [Chorus]
