Representative Text

1 We bless Thee for this sacred day,
Thou, who hast ev'ry blessing giv'n,
Which sends the cares of earth away,
And yields a view of op'ning heav'n.

2 Rich day of holy, thoughtful rest!
May we improve its calm repose,
And in Thy service truly blest,
Forget the world, its joys, its woes.

3 Lord! may Thy truth upon the heart
Now fall and dwell as heav'nly dew,
And flow'rs of grace in freshness start
Where once the tares of error grew.

4 May pray'r that lifts us from earth's strife,
Intent with one clear aim alone,
Bear us to Thee, Thou Lord of Life,
And rest us at Thy shelt'ring throne.
