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 feasts His saints to-day;
Here may we sit, and see Him here,
And love and praise and pray.
3 One day within the place
Where Christ, my Lord, has been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Within the tents of sin.
4 My willing soul would stay
In such a frame as this,
Till called to rise and soar away
To everlasting bliss.
