504. O Happy Day That Fixed My Choice

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.

[Refrain:]
Happy day, happy day,
when Jesus washed my sins away!
He taught me how to watch and pray,
and live rejoicing every 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. (Refrain)

3 'Tis done: the great transaction's done;
I am the Lord's and he is mine;
he drew me, and I followed on,
charmed to confess the voice divine. (Refrain)
