"Lord’s day" - Rev. 1:10s

1.  O day of rest and gladness

     O day of joy and light

     O balm of care and sadness 

     Most beautiful, most bright 

     O thee the high and lowly 

     Before the eternal throne 

     Sing Holy, Holy, Holy

     To the great Three in One.

2.  On thee, at the Creation

     The light first had its birth

     On thee, for our salvation 

     Christ rose from depths of earth 

     On thee our Lord victorious 

     The Spirit sent from heaven 

     And thus on thee most glorious 

     A triple light was given.

3.  Thou art a holy ladder

     Where angels go and come 

     Each Sunday finds us gladder 

     Nearer to heaven, our home

     A day of sweet reflection

     Thou art a day of love

     A day of resurrection

     From earth, the heaven’s linked.

4.  Today on weary nations

     The heavenly manna falls

     To holy convocations

     The silver trumpet calls 

     Where Gospel-light is glowing 

     With pure and radiant beams 

     And living water flowing 

     With soul - refreshing streams.

5.  New grace we ever gaining 

     From this our day of rest 

     We reach the rest remaining 

     To Spirits of the blest

     To Holy Ghost be praises

     To Father and to Son

     The Church her voice upraises

     To Thee, blest Three in One.  Amen
