THE ETERNAL SABBATH




Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love
But there's a nobler rest above;
To that our longing souls aspire,
With ardent hope and strong desire.


No more fatigue, no more distress,
Nor sin nor death shall reach the place;
No groans to mingle with the songs,
Which dwell upon immortal tongues.


No rude alarms of angry foes;
No cares to break the long repose;
No midnight shade, no clouded sun.
But sacred, high, eternal noon.


Around thy throne, grant we may meet,
And give us but the lowest seat;
Well shout thy praise, and join the song
Of the triumphant, holy throng,


Oh, long-expected day, begin;
Dawn on these realms of pain and sin;
With joy we’ll tread th’ appointed road,
And sleep in death to rest with God.


---Alternative verses---


Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love
But there's a nobler rest above;
To that our longing souls aspire,
With ardent pangs of strong desire.


Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love 
But there's a nobler rest above; 
To that our longing souls aspire, 
With cheerful hope and strong desire. 


No more fatigue, no more distress,
Nor sin nor hell shall reach the place;
No groans to mingle with the songs,
Which warble from immortal tongues.


No more fatigue, no more distress, 
Nor sin nor death shall reach the place; 
No groans shall mingle with the songs, 
Which warble from immortal tongues. 


No rude alarms of raging foes;
No cares to break the long repose;
No midnight shade, no clouded sun.
Obscures the lustre of thy throne.


Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love 
But there's a nobler rest above; 
To that our longing souls aspire, 
With cheerful hope and strong desire.
