1 Another six days' work is done,
Another Sabbath is begun;
Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest,
Improve the day that God has blessed.
2 Come, bless the Lord, whose love assigns
So sweet a rest to weary minds;
A blessed antepast is giv'n,
On this day more than all the sev'n.
3 O that our thoughts and thanks may rise
As grateful incense to the skies,
And draw from Christ that sweet repose
Which none but he who feels it knows.
4 This heav'nly calm within the breast
Is the best pledge of glorious rest,
Which for the church of God remains,
The end of cares, the end of pains.
