1. Holy Sabbath, day of rest;
By our great Redeemer blest;
When in majesty He rose,
More than conqueror o’er His foes.

Refrain
Softly now we hear Him say,
Turn from earthly toil away;
Let your pray’rs to Heaven ascend;
I will keep you to the end.

2. Day of worship, hallowed hour,
May the Spirit’s quick’ning pow’r
Give us grace and strength anew,
While our journey we pursue. [Refrain]

3. Holy Sabbath, may thy light,
Pure and holy, calm and bright,
Lift our hearts to God above,
Spring of joy, of life, of love. [Refrain]
