1 Come, dearest Lord, and feed thy sheep,
On this sweet day of rest;
O bless this flock, and make this fold
Enjoy a heav'nly rest,
Enjoy a heav'nly rest.
2 Welcome and precious to my soul
Are these sweet days of love,
But what a Sabbath shall I keep
When I shall rest above,
When I shall rest above!
3 O, if my soul, when Christ appears,
In this sweet frame be found,
I'll clasp my Saviour in my arms,
And leave this earthly ground,
And leave this earthly ground!
