1.Safely through another week,
God has brought us on our way,
Let us now a blessing seek,
Waiting in his courts today;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest,
2.While we seek supplies of grace,
Thro' the dear Redeemer's name,
Show thy reconciling face,
Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in thee,
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in thee.
3.Here we come thy name to praise;
Let us feel thy presence near;
May thy glory reach our eyes,
While we in thy house appear;
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast,
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast.
4.May thy gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Make the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints;
Thus let all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we rest in thee alone,
Thus let all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we rest in thee above
Amen.
