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.
