Verse 1
The Lord's own hallowed day of rest
O day most beautiful and bright;
A day given to us by God
For us, a day to rest therein.

Verse 2
Six days He provided for us
To do all that we have to do;
The seventh day He set aside,
It is God's hallowed day of rest.

Verse 3
Let us forsake our vain pursuits
Our daily duties for six days,
Our work today, let hallowed be,
Because the day belongs to God.

Verse 4
Strength from above enerves us well
For service in the house of God;
Let us sing a joyful anthem,
On the Lord's day, this early morn.

Verse 5
Very early in the morning
On the Lord's hallowed day of rest
Let us raise a joyful chorus
And let us lift our hearts to pray.
