Verse 1
How sweet it is this holy day
A day most beautiful
To set aside all earthly care
And lift our thoughts to heaven.

Verse 2
How sweet it is to have the joy
That comes through pard'ning grace!
To say with boldness, as a son
?Father who art in heaven?.

Verse 3
To hear the words that brings sweet peace
Sent through Thy servant's mouth
A broken heart that weeps for sin,
And sees the gates of heav'n.

Verse 4
And if you come to Jesus Christ
To wash your sins away
The one who knows and sees the heart
Will send abundant grace.

Verse 5
Welcome, thou holy day, welcome,
A day most beautiful
Assembled here are we to pay
Our vows and gratitude.
