264. O Happy Day

1 O happy day that fixed my choice
On Thee, my Savior and my God!
Well may this glowing heart rejoice,
And tell its raptures all abroad.

Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away!
He taught me how to watch and pray,
And live rejoicing ev'ry day;
Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away.

2 O happy bond, that seals my vows
To Him who merits all my love!
Let cheerful anthems fill HIs house,
While to that sacred shrine I move. [Chorus]

3 'Tis done: the great transaction's done;
I am my Lord's, and He is mine;
He drew me and I followed on,
Rejoicing in the call divine. [Chorus]

4 Now rest, my long-divided heart,
Fixed on this blissful center, rest;
Nor ever from my Lo5d depart,
With Him of ev'ry good possessed. [Chorus]
