LORD'S DAY




How pleased was I to hear
The friend of Zion say,
Now to her courts let us repair,
And keep the solemn day.


Shall they invite in vain?
No! there I long to be,
Where heavenly wisdom I may gain,
And still new wonders see.


Hither the rich and poor
Their various offerings bring;
And in harmonious strains adore
Their Maker and their King.


Here beams of mercy shine,
And streams of goodness flow;
Here we may feast on joys divine,
And taste of heaven below.


Here would I ever stay,
Or if I must remove,
Come, angels, bear me swift away,
To brighter scenes above.
