Lyrics

Again ’tis holy Sabbath day,
And we have met to sing and pray;
To learn thro’ tender words of love
The blessèd precepts from above.

Refrain

Oh, we would feel the gentle power
That consecrates this holy hour;
Come, sacred power, around us twine,
And help us live the life divine.

Kind teachers, parents, children dear,
In union sweet all mingle here;
The Savior dear is with us, too,
And all may feel His presence true.

Refrain

Thou loving Savior, teacher kind,
Help us the narrow way to find;
Thou art the truth, the life, the way.
Then may we Thy commands obey.
