    Verse 1
    Welcome, delightful morn, Thou day of sacred rest!
    I hail thy kind return; Lord, make these moments blest:
    From the low train of mortal toys,
    I soar to reach immortal joys,
    I soar to reach immortal joys.

    Verse 2
    Now may the King descend, And fill His throne with grace;
    Thy scepter, Lord extend, While saints address Thy face:
    Let sinners feel Thy quickening word,
    And learn to know and fear the Lord,
    And learn to know and fear the Lord.

    Verse 3
    Descend, celestial Dove,With all Thy quickening powers;
    Disclose a Saviour's love, And bless the sacred hours:
    Then shall my soul new life obtain,
    Nor Sabbaths be enjoyed in vain,
    Nor Sabbaths be enjoyed in vain.
