This is the day the first ripe sheaf Be




This is the day the first ripe sheaf
Before the Lord was wav'd,
And Christ, first-fruits of them that slept,
Was form the dead receiv'd.


He rose for them for whom he died,
That, like to him, they may
Rise when he comes, in glory great,
That ne'er shall fade away.


This is the day the Spirit came
With us on earth to stay--
A comforter, to fill our hearts
With joys that ne'er decay.


His comforts are the earnest sure
Of that same heav'nly rest
Which Jesus enter'd on, when he
Was made for ever blest.


This day the Christian church began,
Form'd by his wondrous grace;
This day the saints in concord meet,
To join in prayer and praise.


To nourish faith, and hope, and love,
His death they do show forth,
His resurrection they record,
And glory in his worth.


This joyful day let us observe;
Redemption's work is done;
The Jewish Sabbaths are no more;
The earthly rest is gone.


To heaven's rest we'll follow Him,
(His death has pav'd the way,)
And there in nobler anthems sing
The glad redemption day.
