    Verse 1
    The heav'ly host are all astir,
    The angels take up their harps
    The saints all set with their voices
    To join the glorious worship
    Our God's day of rest has come
    It is a most glorious day
    Heav'n is filled with joyful noise
    How delightful their worship

    Verse 2
    Let us join the heav'nly throng
    To praise God, He is our King
    Let us cleanse and prepare our hearts
    And sing with holy voices
    Ours can only be a foretaste
    Of their rest in heav'n above
    Until we see the Lord our God
    Whom we worship face to face

    Verse 3
    And until then, let us go on
    Worshiping on the Lord's day
    Let's set aside our anxious cares
    Invoke His presence 'midst us
    He has commanded so to do
    His blessings He will bestow
    Let us serve Him without fainting
    He will surly reward us
