Hymn/Song Information

THE DAY OF REST




Sweet is the task, O Lord,
Thy glorious acts to sing,
To praise thy name, and hear thy word,
And grateful offerings bring.


Sweet, at the dawning hour,
Thy boundless love to tell;
And when the night-wind shuts the flower,
Still on the theme to dwell.


Sweet, on this day of rest,
To join in heart and voice
With those who love and serve thee, Lord,
And in thy name rejoice.


To songs of praise and joy
Be every Sabbath given,
That such may be our best employ
Eternally in heaven.


---Alternative verses---


Sweet, on this day of rest,
To join in heart and voice
With those who love and serve thee best,
And in thy name rejoice.
