THE SABBATH WELCOMED




Welcome, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes!


The King Himself comes near,
And feasts His saints today;
Here we may sit, and see Him here,
And love, and praise, and pray.


One day amidst the place
Where my dear God hath been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Of pleasurable sin.


My willing soul would stay
In such a frame as this,
And sit, and sing herself away
To everlasting bliss.


---Alternative verses---


One day amidst the place
Where Jesus is within.
Is better than ten thousand days
Of pleasure and of sin.


One day within the place
Which thou dost, Lord, frequent,
Is better than ten thousand days
In sinful pleasures spent.


One day amid the place
Where my dear Lord hath been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Within the tents of sin.


My willing soul would stay
In such a frame as this.
Till it is call'd to soar away
To everlasting bliss.
