368. 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.

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]
