1 ‘Tis a glad, sweet time
When a day I spend
And my Lord and I
Talk as friend with friend;
And His way divine
On that day is mine—
‘Tis a glad sweet happy day.

For He knows me
And He shows me
And we walk with one accord;
In the right way—
In the bright way—
Ev’ry day as I walk with my Lord.

2 ‘Tis a glad, sweet way
That my Saviour leads
When with me all day
He supplies my needs;
When with me He walks,
When with me He talks—
‘Tis a glad sweet happy day. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis a glad, way bright
By my Saviour’s side;
When His holy light
All my footsteps guide;
When with me Christ goes
And the way He shows—
‘Tis a glad sweet happy day. [Refrain]
