Representative Text

1 In our Sabbath-school we rejoice today,
As we read God’s word we would fain obey;
We receive the gems that his truths impart,
More than wealth of gold to each trusting heart.

In our Sabbath-school rejoicing,
How we bless our Savior King!
It is here we learn of Jesus,
And with love his praises sing.

2 In youth’s sunny hours, while no evil days,
Come to mar our joys and to dim life’s ways;
We would come to Christ with each heart sincere,
For today he calls who is ever near. [Refrain]

3 In our Sabbath-school we rejoice today,
We would walk with Christ in the narrow way,
And with trusting souls we his truth receive,
Who hath said, “Repent, and my word believe.” [Refrain]
