    Verse 1
    Welcome, sweet day of rest,
    That saw the LORD arise;
    Welcome to this reviving breast,
    And these rejoicing eyes.

    Verse 2
    The King Himself comes near,
    And feast his saints today,
    Here may we stay, and see Him here,
    And love, and praise, and pray.

    Verse 3
    One day of prayer and praise
    His sacred courts within,
    Is sweeter than ten thousand days
    In pleasure's path of sin.

    Verse 4
    My willing soul would stay
    In such a frame as this;
    And wait to hail the brighter day
    Of everlasting bliss.
