Full Text

1. Sweet Sabbath eve, Bright is thy smile,
Linger, O linger to cheer us awhile;
Sweet Sabbath eve, Beautiful ray,
Fade not so quickly away.

CHORUS:
Lovely and pure thy starlit brow
Holy the tho'ts thou art breathing now;
Sweet Sabbath eve, Beautiful ray,
Fade not so quickly away.

2. Sweet Sabbath eve, Hallowed and blest,
Sending the soul to its haven of rest;
Linger awhile, Beautiful ray,
Fade not so quickly away.

Chorus:
Make us to feel the God of love
Looks on us still from that world above.
Sweet Sabbath eve, Beautiful ray,
Fade not so quickly away.

3. Sweet Sabbath eve, Bear on thy wing
Upward to heaven the praises we sing;
Fainter thy voice, Faded thy hue,
Gently we bid thee adieu.

Chorus: Lovely and pure thy starlit brow,
Holy the tho'ts thou art breathing now;
Sweet Sabbath eve, Beautiful ray,
Fade not so quickly away.
