1. Welcome, delightful morn,
Thou day of sacred rest;
I hail thy kind return;
Lord, make these moments blest:
From the low train of mortal toys,
I soar to reach immortal joys.

2. Now may the King descend,
and fill His throne of grace:
Thy sceptre, Lord, extend,
While saints address Thy face;
Let sinners feel Thy quickening word,
And learn to know and fear the Lord.

3. Descend, celestial Dove,
With all Thy quickening powers;
Disclose a Saviour's love,
And bless these sacred hours;
Then shall my soul new life obtain,
Nor Sabbath's ere be spent in vain.

The Hymnal: Published by the authority of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., 1895
