Come, join our throng to­day,
Come child­ren, come to Sab­bath School;
We learn to sing and pray,
Our rule the gold­en rule.


Oh, wel­come here,
This bright and ho­ly Sab­bath day,
Come join us in a song,
This ho­ly Sab­bath day.

Come, join with us to read
The Bi­ble, Word of God to man;
Its les­sons all we’ll need,
They teach sal­va­tion’s plan.


Come, wan­d’rer, join us here,
The Mas­ter, too, is call­ing thee;
Oh heed your Sav­ior dear,
He says, Come learn of Me.
