1 Welcome, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes!
2 The King Himself comes near,
And feast His saints today;
Here may we sit, and see Him here,
And love, and praise, and pray.
3 One day within the place
Which Thou dost Lord, frequent
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
In sinful pleasure spent.
4 My willing soul would stay
In such a frame as this,
And sit and sing herself away
To everlasting bliss.
