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.

Chorus:
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]
