CGS No.: 

Verse 1
After six days that He has worked
He rested on the seventh day;
He commanded us to do the same
And keep that day, hallowed for Him.

Verse 2
We want to fulfil that command
In this Thy holy house today;
As long as we are here today
Let us know that Thou art here too.

Verse 3
As we open Thy holy book
Let us read with humility,
Let us know that Thou speaks to us
And let us listen to Thy word.

Verse 4
Show us the meaning by Thyself,
We are so simple and unwise;
Thy words are very deep indeed
And our understanding is small.

Verse 5
Come and be with all our teachers,
Annoint them with Thy Holy Ghost
Give them the understanding, Lord
However deep Thy word may be.

Verse 6
And when we shall depart this place
Please, Lord, be with us on our way,
That we may keep remembering Thee
Until another Sunday School.
