Full Text

1 We thank Thee, O Lord, for a Sabbath of rest;
A day of all others the brightest and best;
A day that observed and respected should be,—
‘Twas made for Thy worship, ‘tis sacred to Thee.

Refrain:
Remember the Sabbath, thro’out our broad land;
Remember the Sabbath, ‘tis God’s own command;
Transmitted from Sinai, in language divine;—
“Six days shalt thou labor, the Sabbath is mine.”

2 Our fathers rejoic’d in Thy Sabbath, O Lord;
They walk’d in Thy counsels, believed in Thy word;
They clung to the Bible, their staff and their guide,
And, trusting Thy promise, in triumph they died. [Refrain]

3 We thank Thee, O Lord, for a Sabbath of rest;
A day that so richly Thy presence hath blest;
A day when our vigor and strength, we renew,
While onward, and upward, our path we pursue. [Refrain]

4 And when the last Sabbath shall fade from our sight,
Prepare us to enter the mansions of light;
And there, with the just and the faithful to spend
A Sabbath in glory, that never shall end. [Refrain]
