SWEET is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal care shall seize our breast;
Oh may our hearts in tune be found
Like David's harp of solemn sound.

Our souls shall triumph in the Lord,
And bless his works-and praise his word,
His works of grace-how bright they shine!
How deep his counsels-how divine!

Sure we shall share a glorious part
When grace has well refined our heart
When fresh supplies of joy he sheds
Like holy oil upon our heads.

Then shall we see, and hear, and know
All we desired, or wished below;
And every power find sweet employ
In that eternal world of joy.
