We sing our song of jubilee,
Our voices rising loud and free;
And with the notes of sweet accord,
We praise our ever blessèd Lord.

Refrain

Singing together, singing together,
Teachers and scholars gladly unite;
Singing together, singing together,
Love fills our hearts, and our faces are bright.

We praise Him for our mercies past,
And at His feet our cares we cast;
And O may He who guides our way
Forbid our youthful steps to stray.

Refrain

Our Sabbath school, O may He bless,
And guard its lambs with tenderness;
And lead us gently when we die
To our good shepherd’s fold on high.
