1. Hail happy morning, hail, holy day,
Calling from earthly labors away,
Sweet words of wisdom, glad songs of joy,
Now be our best employ.

Refrain
Sing once more the happy, happy song,
While the golden moments roll along,
Come to the temple, come, come away,
Hallow the Sabbath day.

2. Emblem of heaven, sweet day of rest,
In thy remembrance, may we be blessed.
So may our songs and lives ever say,
Hallow the Sabbath day. [Refrain]

3. Rest from our labors, rest from our cares,
Rest in our praises, rest in our prayers,
So the commandment would we obey,
Hallow the Sabbath day. [Refrain]
