1. THE Lord of Sabbath let us praise
In concert with the blest
Who, joyful, in harmonious lays
Employ an endless rest.
2. Thus, Lord, while we remember Thee
We blest and pious grow
By hymns of praise we learn to be
Triumphant here below.
3. On this glad day a brighter scene
Of glory was displayed
By God, th’eternal Word, than when
This universe was made.
4. He rises, who mankind has bought
With grief and pain extreme
‘T was great to speak a world from nought
'T was greater to redeem! Amen
