But in the sweetness of His rest

He makes His servants share.
2 How sweetly rest Thy saints above

Which in Thy bosom lie!
Thy Church below doth rest in hope

Of that felicity.
m 3 Welcome and dear unto my soul

Are these sweet feasts of love;
mf But what a Sabbath shall I keep

When I shall rest above!
m 4 I bless Thy wise and wondrous love,

Which binds us to be free,
Which makes us leave our earthly snares

That we may come to Thee.
5 I come, I wait, I hear, I pray;

Thy footsteps, Lord, I trace;
I sing to think this is the way

Unto my Saviour's face.
mf 6 Blest day of God, most calm, most bright,

The first and best of days,
The labourer's rest, the saint's delight,

A day of mirth and praise !

'Lord, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thine

honour dwelleth.'
E love the place, O God,

Wherein T'hine honour dwells;
The joy of Thine abode

All earthly joy excels.
mp 2 It is the house of prayer,

Wherein Thy servants meet;
And Thou, O Lord, art there,

Thy chosen flock to greet.
3
We love the word of life,

The word that tells of peace,
Of comfort in the strife

And joys that never cease.
4 We love to sing below

For mercies freely given;
But 0 we long to know

The triumph song of heaven!
mp 5 Lord Jesus, give us grace,

On earth to love Thee more,
In heaven to see Thy face,
And with Thy saints adore.

In Thy risen power;

Into every heart;
Let this time of worship

Bid the fears and sorrows
Be a hallowed hour.

From each soul depart.

We pursue our way,
Watching for the dawning

Of eternal day.

'I have set my affection to the house of my God! mp SWEEThristian to the house of prayer

; WEET is the solemn voice that calls 2 I love to tread the hallowed courts

Where two or three for worship meet, I love to stand within its walls,

For thither Christ Himself resorts, For Thou, O Lord, art present there.

And makes the little band complete. m 3 'Tis sweet to raise the common song,

To join in holy praise and love,
And imitate the blessed throng
That mingle hearts and songs above.

28 mf 4 Within these walls may peace abound;

May all our hearts in one agree;
Where brethren meet, where Christ is found,
May peace and concord ever be.
