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
