    Verse 1
    Jesus our Lord on this Thy day
    Hear us and be with us today;
    Assembled here are we to pray
    And to take heed to all thy word

    Verse 2
    Pleasant to us the rest below
    But sweeter far and rest above
    Our yearning hearts long for that day
    To reach a sinless world above

    Verse 3
    No strife, no war and no alarm,
    No anxious cares as in the world
    That shall be mixed with all our song
    That from immortal lips proceed

    Verse 4
    Begin O long expected day
    Thy blessed morn we now await
    We yearn to rise above earth's woe
    To reach the promised rest above
