Glowing bright and pleasant

Representative Text

1 Glowing bright and pleasant is the holy day,
When from worldly duties glad we turn away;
Blest beyond all others, with their work or play,
Is the holy Sabbath day.

Refrain:
Ever precious morning, when the Saviour rose,
With his love adorning, making friends of foes;
Till the angel’s warning tells us we must close,
Shall we love the Sabbath day.

2 Happy bells are ringing, calling us away,
With their merry chiming, seeming thus to say,
“Come and join the singing, haste without delay,
’Tis the holy Sabbath day.” [Refrain]

3 Joyous hearts are greeting, each to each today,
While our dear Redeemer willing we obey,
And with voices mingling, here we praise and pray,
On this holy Sabbath day. [Refrain]
