Lyrics

  1. 1. When the rosy light of morning
    Softly 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 fragrance
    On the holy Sabbath day.
  2. (Chorus)
    Then away, haste away!
    Come away to the Sunday School!
    Then away, do not delay!
    Come away to the Sunday School!
  3. 2. For a good and glorious purpose
    Thus we meet each Sabbath day,
    Each one striving for salvation
    Thru the Lord's appointed way.
    Earnest toil will be rewarded;
    Zealous hearts need not repine.
    God will not withhold his blessings
    From the eager, seeking mind.
  4. 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.
  5. Text and music: Robert B. Baird, 1855-1916
