Our hymn of thanks we sing to­day;
Our hearts and voices raise,
To Him who, with a Fa­ther’s love,
Has guided all our ways:
The mercies of an­o­ther year
Demand our grate­ful praise.

Jesus, accept the thanks we bring,
Unworthy though they be;
Thou didst of old let child­ren sing
Hosannas unto Thee.
We too present our of­fer­ing,
And join their har­mo­ny.

Throughout the year we have been blest
With lessons from Thy word,
From teachers dear, who nev­er tire
In working for their Lord,
Our minds to train, our souls to win:
O give them their re­ward.

May we still love the Sun­day School;
Still love Thy word and ways;
And wise unto sal­va­tion grow,
In these our youth­ful days;
Then join the bless­èd band above,
Who ever sing Thy praise.

Lord, smile upon the friends who come
To aid this work of love;
Their offerings gra­cious­ly ac­cept;
Thy blessing may they prove
A hundred fold—and may we meet
Teachers and friends above.
