Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)


Away, away to Sun­day school,
Our hearts to­ge­ther beat­ing;
We haste to win from those we love
A smile of hap­py greet­ing.


Our Sun­day school, dear Sun­day school,
With pur­est plea­sure glow­ing,
Where tran­quil peace and ho­ly joy
Are like a ri­ver flow­ing.

Away, away to Sun­day school,
And learn the songs of glad­ness,
That tell of Him whose ten­der love
Will ban­ish care and sad­ness.


God bless our school, our teach­ers all,
And bind our souls to­ge­ther
In sac­red bonds of kin­dred love
No earth­ly pow­er can se­ver.
