Place for Me, The

Lyrics

Verse 1
There is a place where children go,
And learn to bow the knee
To him that gives the saints below
A joy the world can never know,
And that’s the place for me!
Oh that’s the place for me!
And that’s the place for me!
The place where children love to go,
Oh that’s the place for me!

Verse 2
The Sabbath-school is just the place
Where children ought to be,
And learn in early life to trace
The precious fount of saving grace,
And that’s the place for me!
Oh that’s the place for me!
And that’s the place for me!
The place where children love to go,
Oh that’s the place for me!

Verse 3
’Tis there that all in holy song
Are making melody;
Where children gather fresh and strong
To aid the heavenly strains along,
And that’s the place for me!
Oh that’s the place for me!
And that’s the place for me!
The place where children love to go,
Oh that’s the place for me!

Verse 4
When humming voices soft and sweet
In lessons all agree,
The Spirit comforts those who meet
With blessings from the mercy-seat,
And that’s the place for me!
Oh that’s the place for me!
And that’s the place for me!
The place where children love to go,
Oh that’s the place for me!
