1 I hail the day of sacred joy
That brings me to my Saviour’s side;
With that blest throng who love the Lord
May I for evermore abide!
O blessed day, O blessed day,
That brings me to my King!
All hail to Thee, O gracious Lord,
With grateful voice I sing.
2 My heart is warm with fervent love
As to the Lord my vows I pay;
The solemn covenant is sealed,
And I am His this blessed day! [Refrain]
3 Still there is work for me to do!
It may be but a lowly task,
But yet to do His blessed will
Is all the glory I can ask! [Refrain]
