Representative Text

1. The earth is hushed in silence,
Its cares now flee away,
Let all things bow in reverence,
On this the Lord’s own day.

O praise and pray on this,
The Lord’s own day.

2. The bells are sweetly ringing,
Their clear toned voices say:
Ye people, come and worship
On this, the Lord’s own day. [Refrain]

3. Come, all ye thankful people;
Why should our hearts delay
To greet the Lord of Heaven
On this His holy day? [Refrain]
