1 When Lord’s Day morning comes so fair and bright,
Then I seem to hear,
O so sweet and clear,
The choirs above, their songs of pure delight
Singing, O so sweet and clear:
All praise to God,
They sing so sweet and clear.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Heav’nly choirs in robes of white,
Sing to God in glory bright;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We will join the lofty song of pure delight.

2 O blessed morning, best of all the seven,
With thy lovely dawn,
Cares of earth are gone,
And to my soul that sweetest song of heav’n
Cometh with thy lovely dawn:
All praise to God,
Comes with thy lovely dawn. [Refrain]

3 O should we ever tempted be to roam,
On this holy day,
Into sin away,
May heav’nly voices sweetly call us home,
Call us from our sin away:
Come home, come home,
O come from sin away. [Refrain]
