11975. The Sabbath Chime

1 Bright and blessèd morning,
How I love thy dawning,
Hark! the sounding bells;
Deep tones, is the calling,
On the ear ’tis falling,
Love and peace it tells.

2 Weary wanderer weeping,
God the Father seeking,
Hither, hither come;
O’er the heart is stealing
Love’s devoted feeling,
To the heav’nly One.

3 While the tones are pealing,
In the temple kneeling,
Join the Sabbath chime.
Emblem to us given,
Of the voice of Heaven,
Melody divine.
