Verse 1
How delightful is the Lord's day
The bell that rings, the word we hear,
When I feel sad and sorrowful,
They always make my heart so glad.

Verse 2
How delightful also the hour
That I observe within Thy courts
To know the sweet pleasure in prayer,
Partake the manna of Thy word.

Verse 3
There is delight in the ?Amen?
From many lips that fills the house,
It pours out from the throat of men,
And passes to the Father's throne.

Verse 4
The world may wish to tie me down
To its six-day labour burden,
Break up the chain; remove the snare,
Release my soul and set me free.
