1 We've entered now on holy time,
God's blessed rest-day all divine;
The labors of the week are past,
Now let earth's cares aside be cast.
2 O let us help repair the breach,
And all of God's commandments teach,
Calling his rest-day our delight,
Thus walking blameless in his sight.
3 This holy rest to us is given,
To call our minds from earth to heaven;
That we may not forget the Lord,
And trample down his holy word.
4 The faith of Jesus, too, we need;
For thus the flying angel said;
Commands of God and Jesus' faith
Will shield us in the day of wrath.
