Welcome the Sabbath day

Representative Text

1. Welcome the Sabbath day
Of all our days the best;
On this glad day we come to pray,
To worship and to rest;
From all our worldly cares set free,
We come, O Lord, to worship thee;
From all our worldly cares set free,
We come, O Lord, to worship thee.

2. Welcome the Sabbath day
Within thy house, O Lord
We come to learn of all thy ways
From out thy sacred Word;
On this the best of all our days
We come with songs of grateful praise;
On this the best of all our days
We come with songs of grateful praise.

3. This glad triumphant day,
Our risen Lord proclaim;
To him we cheerful homage pay,
And magnify his name;
Glad day on which our Christ arose
And triumphed over all his foes;
Glad day on which our Christ arose
And triumphed over all his foes.
