REJOICING IN THE SABBATH




Welcome, delightful morn,
Thou day of sacred rest!
I hail Thy kind return;
Lord, make these moments blest;
From the low train of mortal toys,
|: I soar to reach immortal joys. :|


To spend one sacred day
Where God and saints abide
Affords diviner joy
Than thousand days beside
I love it more where God resorts
To keep the door than shine in courts
Than keep the door than shine in courts


Now may the king descend,
And fill His throne with grace;
Thy sceptre, Lord, extend,
While saints address Thy face:
Let sinners feel Thy quickening word,
|:And learn to know and fear the Lord.:|


Descend celestial Dove
With all Thy quickening powers;
Disclose the Saviourís love,
And bless these sacred hours:
Then shall my soul new life obtain,
|:Nor Sabbath be enjoyed in vain. :|
