    And tell its raptures all abroad.

    Happy day! happy day!
    When Jesus washed my sins away.

    Verse 2

    O happy bond that seals my vows
    To Him who merits all my love!
    Let cheerful anthems fill His house,
    While to that sacred shrine I move.

    Fixed on this blissful centre, rest:
    Nor ever from thy Lord depart,
    With Him of every good possessed.

    High heaven, that heard the solemn vow,
    That vow renewed shall daily hear,
    Till in life's latest hour I bow
    And bless in death a bond so dear.
