Lyrics from Deseret Sunday School Songs, 1909

1. Come, join our celebration
With hallowed songs of joy,
And on this bright occasion
Your sweetest notes employ.
Parents and friends invited,
And teachers now are here,
In purpose all united,
Our youthful hearts to cheer.

Refrain
Come, join our celebration
With hallowed songs of joy,
And on this bright occasion
Your sweetest notes employ.

2. Thanks to the God of heaven,
Kind guardian of our race,
For all the favors given
Beneath His smiling face;
For health and strength and reason,
And friendship unalloyed,
And ev'ry pleasant season
In Sundayschools enjoyed.

3. Thanks for the kind protection
God's arm has thrown around,
And for that sweet affection
He causees to abound
In those who're watching o'er us,
With many'an anxious sigh,
And seeking to restore us
To peace and heav'nly joy.

4. May God with many'a blessing
Reward their toil and care,
And hear them while addressing
His throne in fervent prayer.
And may His love, constraining,
Our youthful spirits bow,
And grace, forever reigning,
Our inmost souls endow.
