1 To Day God bids the Faithful rest,
To Day he show'rs his Grace;
"Seek ye my Face," the Lord hath said,
Lord, we will seek thy Face.
2 Come, let us leave the Things on Earth,
With God's Assembly join;
Lo! Heav'n descends to welcome Man,
To taste the Things divine!
3 We come, dear Saviour, lo! we come,
Lord of our Life and soul;
We come diseas'd, and faint, and sick,
Be pleas'd to make us whole.
4 We thirst, and fly to thee, O Lord,
Thou Fountain-Head of Good;
Filthy we come, and all Unclean,
O cleanse us in thy Blood.
5 O may we please our God to day,
May that be all our Care!
Give, Lord, thy Grace, lest evil Thoughts
Should mingle in our Pray'r.
6 Amid th' Assembly of thy Saints,
Let us be faithful found;
And let us join in humble Pray'r,
And in thy Praise abound.
7 Let thy good Spirit help our souls,
With Faith thy Word to hear;
Be with us in thy Temple, Lord,
And let us find the near.
