1. Welcome, welcome, Sabbath morning!
We’ve no task, nor toil today;
And the Sabbath morn returning,
Tells a week has passed away.

Refrain
Welcome, welcome, quiet morning!
We’ve no task nor toil today;
And the Sabbath morn returning,
Tells a week has passed away.

2. Let us think how time is gliding,
Soon the longest life departs;
Nothing human is abiding,
To the trust of youthful hearts. [Refrain]

3. Swift our childhood’s dreams are passing,
Like the startled doves they fly;
Or bright clouds in fleetest chasing,
Out on yonder quiet sky. [Refrain]

4. Now, dear Lord, our prayer we raise Thee,
From our young and happy hearts;
Never let us cease to praise Thee;
Never from Thy fear depart. [Refrain]

5. Then when years have gathered o’er us,
And the world begins to fade;
Heaven’s bright realms will rise before us,
Treasures that will never fade. [Refrain]
