Representative Text

1 O hail, happy day, that speaks our trials ended;
Our Lord has come to take us home,
O hail, happy day!
No more by doubts or fears distressed,
We now shall gain our promised rest,
And be forever blest;
O hail, happy day!

2 Swell loud the glad note, our bondage now is over,
The jubilee proclaims us free,
O hail, happy day!
The day that brings a sweet release,
That crown our Jesus Prince of peace,
And bids our sorrows cease;
O hail, happy day!

3 O hail, happy day, that ends our tears and sorrows,
That brings us joy without alloy,
O hail, happy day!
There peace shall wave her scepter high,
And love's fair banner greet the eye,
Proclaiming victory;
O hail, happy day!

4 We hail thy bright beams, O morn of Zion's glory,
Thy blessed light breaks on our sight,
O hail, happy day!
Fair Beulah's fields before us rise,
And sweetly burst upon our eyes
The joys of Paradise;
O hail, happy day!

5 Thrice hail, happy day, when earth shall smile in gladness,
And Eden bloom o'er nature's tomb,
O hail, happy day!
Where life's pure waters gently glide,
Safe by the dear Redeemer's side,
Forever we'll abide;
O hail, happy day!
