1 To thee O Saviour glory be!
This is the day of rest--
On which we join to worship thee,
Thee, O thou ever bless'd!
2 This is the day the Saviour rose
And set us pris'ners free;
The day which the Apostles chose,
The day of rest to be.
3 On which the christian church should meet
To praise our gracious Lord!
To worship at his mercy's seat,
To hear and learn his word.
4 Lord, here we join thy praise to sing!
Lord, here we join to pray--
To worship thee our Lord and King,
Our life, the truth, the way.
