Lyrics:John Newton
Music:Lowell Mason

This hymn has a unique tune.


Repeat the last two lines of each verse


Passing through another week,

God has granted us His aid;

Let us now a blessing seek,

On the day the Lord hath made;

Day of all the week the best,

Emblem of eternal rest.


While we pray for pard'ning grace,

Through the dear Redeemer's name,

Show Thy reconcilèd face;

Take away our sin and shame:

From our worldly cares set free,

May we rest this day in Thee.


Here we come Thy name to praise,

Let us feel Thy presence near;

May Thy glory meet our eyes,

While we in Thy house appear:

Here afford us, Lord, a taste

Of our everlasting feast.


May Thy gospel's joyful sound

Conquer sinners, comfort saints;

Make the fruits of grace abound,

Bring relief for all complaints:

Thus may all our Lord's Days prove,

Till we meet the Lord above.
