HYMN 372. L. M.
The Lord's day.
1. ANOTHER six days' work is done,
is begun : Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest, Improve the day thy God has blest.
2. Come, bless the Lord, whose love assigns So sweet a rest to wearied minds; Provides an antepast of heav'n,
And gives this day the food of sev❜n.
3. O that our thoughts and thanks may rise, As grateful incense to the skies;
And draw from heav'n that sweet repose, Which none, but he who feels it, knows. 4. With joy, great God! thy works we view In various scenes both old and new;
With praise we think on mercies past,
5. In holy duties let the day,
In holy pleasures pass away.
1. LORD of the sabbath! hear our vows
2. Thine earthly sabbaths, Lord! we love; But there's a nobler rest above.
Thy servants to that rest aspire With ardent hope and strong desire. 3. There languor shall no more oppress; The heart shall feel no more distress; No groans shall mingle with the songs, That dwell upon immortal tongues. 4. No gloomy cares shall there annoy, No conscious guilt disturb our joy; But ev'ry doubt and fear shall cease, And perfect love give perfect peace.
5. When shall that glorious day begin,
1. FREQUENT the day of God returns,
2. Accept our faint attempts to love;
3. Increase, O Lord! our faith and hope,
Where the assembly ne'er breaks up,
4. Where we shall breathe in heav'nly air,
HYMN 375. L. M.
2. Sweet is the day of sacred rest :
No mortal care shall fill my breast;
When grace hath well refin'd my heart,
4. And shall I see, and hear, and know,
HYMN 376. c. M.
1. THIS is the day the Lord hath made;
And death's dread empire fell,
3. Hosannah! the anointed King
4. Blest be the Lord, who came to men
Who came in God his Father's name,
5. Hosannah in the highest strains
HYMN 377. s. M.
1. AGAIN the Lord of light
Awakes the kindling ray:
2. O what a night was that
Which wrapp'd mankind in gloom! O what a sun, which broke this day Triumphant from the tomb !
3. This day be homage paid,
And loud hosannahs sung; Let gladness dwell in ev'ry heart, And praise on ev'ry tongue. 4. Ten thousand lips shall join To hail this welcome morn, Which scatters blessings from its wings To nations yet unborn.
HYMN 378. c. M.
1. HAIL, happy morn! whose early ray
Welcome again, auspicious day!
2. On this blest morn, birth-day of hope!
Let not one soul be sad.
This is the day the Lord hath made,
3. Come, and the wonders of the day
4. O happy souls, that feel the pow'r Of his attractive love!
With him they die, with him they live,
HYMN 879. P. M.
1. LORD, dismiss us with thy blessing;
Trav'lling through this wilderness.
With us evermore be found!
HYMN 380. P. M.
1. THANKS for mercies past receive;
our sins renew; Teach us henceforth how to live, With eternity in view.
2. Bless thy word to old and young; Grant us, Lord! thy peace and love; And, when life's short course is run,
Take us to thy house above.
HYMN 381. L. M.
