Representative Text

1 I thank thee, Father, that I live
To see this day of thine:
This day of rest, this day of peace,
Proclaims thy love divine.

2 To-day, I thank thee, most of all,
For thy best gift of love;
The gift of Christ, whose saving grace
We all, to-day, may prove.

3 And when the evening shades of life
Bring slumber and repose,
Oh, may I see thee face to face,
Where Sabbaths never close!
