1 As time rolls on amid earth's gloom profound,
And wearing toil presents a ceaseless round,
'Tis good to have some way-marks on our road,
To cheer our hearts, and lift our thoughts to God.

2 The Sabbath to this end divinely blest,
Not only gives the body timely rest,
But by its influence helps our minds to raise
And tune our hearts to our Creator's praise.

3 Then hail the glad memorial of our King!
Let us give thanks, and join his praise to sing;
And learning now to celebrate his praise,
So shall we sing of him through endless days.
