Representative Text

1. On this pleasant Sabbath day,
let us sing a joyful lay,
To the God who reigns in earth and Heav’n above.
He has kept us thro’ the week,
and today His smiles we seek,
And we humbly ask His blessing and His love.

Sing, O sing a joyful song,
Youthful hearts the strain prolong,
Let us ask the Lord we praise,
In our best and sweetest lays,
For His blessing in our happy Sabbath throng.

2. He has kept us free from harm
by His kind and mighty arm,
And He gives us here His Word to guide our feet;
May we learn it now in love,
and direct our thoughts above,
Where about His throne the happy angels meet. [Refrain]

3. Praise to Him who will not fail
when our enemies assail,
And when dangers cluster thickly where we stand,
He will bring us safe at last,
where the dangers are all past,
To our happy homes in His celestial land. [Refrain]
