Sabbath Morning.


OH the Sabbath morning, beautiful and bright,

Joyfully we hail its golden light:

All the gloomy shadows chasing far away,

Bringing us the welcome day.


Day calm and holy, day nearest heaven,

Day which a Father's love has given;

Oh the Sabbath morning, beautiful and bright,

Glad we hail its golden light.

All the days of labor, ended one by one,

Glad are we the six days' work is done.

Sweet to have a day of sacred, holy rest

'Tis the day that God hath blest.


Let us spend the moments of this holy day,

So that when they all have passed away,

Sweet 'twill be to think the quiet Sabbath even,

Brings us one day nearer heaven.
