HYMN CCCLI.

6.6.8.6

James Montgomery

The Sabbath on Earth--The Sabbath in Heaven.

The Sabbath of the Lord,

The Sabbath is our day,

For then we read and hear God's word,

We learn to praise and pray.

Ours is the Sunday school,

Its lessons may we prize,

And grow by every gospel rule

Unto salvation wise.

So all our lives below,

In Wisdom's pleasant ways,

The fruits of Sunday schools shalt show,

The bliss of Sabbath days.

Lord of the Sabbath, send

Prosperity and peace,

Till tasks and teaching here shall end,

Tongues fail, and knowledge cease.

374

Then heaven itself shall be

One Sunday school above;

An undisturb'd eternity

One Sabbath day of love.
