        When the worn spirit wants repose,
        And sighs her God to seek,
        How sweet to hail the evening's close
        That ends the weary week!


        How sweet to hail the early dawn
        That opens on the sight,
        When first that soul-reviving morn
        Sheds forth new rays of light!


        Sweet day! thine hours too soon will cease;
        Yet, while they gently roll,
        Breathe, heavenly Spirit, source of peace,
        A Sabbath o'er my soul.


        When will my pilgrimage be done,
        The world's long week be o'er,
        That Sabbath dawn which needs no sun,
        That day which fades no more?
