Come Away to the Sunday School

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Brightly

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.

[Chorus]

Then away, haste away!

Come away to the Sunday School!

Then away, do not delay!

Come away to the Sunday School!

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.

[Chorus]

Then away, haste away!

Come away to the Sunday School!

Then away, do not delay!

Come away to the Sunday School!

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.

[Chorus]

Then away, haste away!

Come away to the Sunday School!

Then away, do not delay!

Come away to the Sunday School!
