THE SABBATH
Hail, peaceful day! divinely blest!
Sweetly thy glories would we sing,
Memorial of that sacred rest,
Of vast creation's mighty King;
This hallowed time to man was given,
A foretaste of the bliss of heaven.
Hark! through the shining courts above
What rapturous praises echo now
Around that holy law of love
Seraphs in adoration bow;
Let earth, responsive to the strain,
Exalt alone Jehovah's name
O come, thou bright, immortal day!
When at His temple all adore,
And own His universal sway
From age to age, forevermore;
Then Zion shall in triumph reign,
And Eden bloom on earth again.
