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.


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.


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.
