Full Text

1 Happy, happy Sunday!
Day of rest and peace,
Which from earthly labours
Bringeth us release;
Day which tells of Jesus
Rising from the dead,
Day on which His members
With His grace are fed!

2 Jewish bondage ended,
Jewish rites surpassed,
On this day we worship
Christ, the First and Last;
Here in Christian freedom,
Gladly we may sing
Hymns of praise and honour
To our loving King.

3 Every week, in Jesus,
Thus do we begin,
Who redeemed and called us,
Saving us from sin;
And our week-day labours
Are for ever blest,
By the gracious worship
Of the Sunday Rest. AMEN.
