28. Happy Day

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

Chorus:
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 'Tis done, the great transaction's done--
I am my Lord's and he is mine;
He drew me, and I followed on,
Charmed to confess the voice divine.
[Chorus]

3 Now rest, my long divided heart:
Fixed on this blissful centre, rest;
Nor ever from thy Lord depart,
With him of every good possessed.
[Chorus]
