Come Away to the Sunday School
, 276


1. When the rosy light of morningSoftly beams above the hill,And the birds, sweet heav’nly songsters,Ev’ry dell with music fill,Fresh from slumber we awaken;Sunshine chases clouds away.Nature breathes her sweetest fragranceOn the holy Sabbath day.
[Chorus]Then away, haste away!Come away to the Sunday School!Then away, do not delay!Come away to the Sunday School!
2. For a good and glorious purposeThus we meet each Sabbath day,Each one striving for salvationThru the Lord’s appointed way.Earnest toil will be rewarded;Zealous hearts need not repine.God will not withhold his blessingsFrom the eager, seeking mind.
3. Let us then press boldly onward,Prove ourselves as soldiers true.He will lead us; he will guide us.Come, there’s work for all to do,Never tiring, never doubting,Boldly struggling to the end.In the world, tho foes assail us,God will surely be our friend.
