Hymn/Song Information

Frequent this day O God returns To shed its




Frequent the day of God returns
To shed its quickening beams;
And yet how slow devotion burns,
How languid are its flames.


Increase, Oh Lord, our faith and hope,
And fit us to ascend,
Where the assembly ne’er breaks up,
And Sabbaths never end.


Accept our faint attempts to love—
Our frailties, Lord, forgive;
We would be like thy saints above.
And praise thee while we live.


There shall we join, and never tire,
To sing immortal lays;
And with the bright seraphic choir,
Sound forth Immanuel’s praise.


Where we shall breathe in heavenly air,
With heavenly lustre shine;
Before the throne of God appear.
And feast on love divine.

Accept our faint attempts to love—
Our follies, Lord, forgive;
We would be like thy saints above.
And praise thee while we live.


There shall I sing and never tire,
But sound immortal lays:
And with the bright, seraphic choir,
Sound forth Immanuel's praise.
