The Christian Sabbath Morning.
1 ANOTHER Six days' work is done,
2 O that our thoughts and thanks may rise,
3 This heavenly calm, within the breast,
4 In holy duties, let the day,
In holy pleasures, pass away;
The eternal Sabbath.
1 LORD of the Sabbath, hear our vows,
2 Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love;
3 No more fatigue, no more distress;
4 No rude alarms of raging foes;
5 O long expected day, begin;
Dawn on these realms of woe and sin;
1 SLEEP, sleep to-day, tormenting cares
Ye shall not dim the light that streams
2 To-morrow will be time enough
3 Sleep, sleep forever, guilty thoughts!
S. M. SPIRIT OF THE PSALMS.
The day of Rest. Morning or Evening. Ps. 92. 1 SWEET is the task, O Lord,
Thy glorious acts to sing,
To praise thy name, and hear thy word,
2 Sweet, at the dawning hour, Thy boundless love to tell;
And when the night-wind shuts the flower, Still on the theme to dwell.
3 Sweet, on this day of rest,
4 To songs of praise and joy
SPIRIT OF THE PSALMS.
For the Morning of the Lord's Day. Ps. 118.
1 THIS is the day the Lord hath made:
Let songs of triumph hail the morn,
2 The stone the builders set at nought,
The sure foundation, and the strength
3 Christ is that stone, rejected once, And numbered with the slain; Now raised in glory, o'er his church Eternally to reign.
4 This is the day the Lord hath made:
26. S. M. The Lord's Day; or, Delight in Ordinances. 1 WELCOME, Sweet day of rest, That saw the Lord arise; Welcome to this reviving breast, And these rejoicing eyes!
2 The King himself comes near,
3 One day amidst the place
Where my dear Lord hath been, Is sweeter than ten thousand days Of pleasurable sin.
4 My willing soul would stay
To everlasting bliss.
The Sacrifice of the Heart. 1 WHEN, as returns this solemn day, Man comes to meet his Maker, God, What rites, what honors shall he pay? How spread his sovereign's praise abroad?
2 From marble domes and gilded spires
3 Vain, sinful man! creation's Lord
Christ in the midst of his People.
1 On the first Christian Sabbath eve,
O'er his lost fellowship to grieve,
2 Lo, in their midst his form was seen, :
Their Master's marred and wounded mien,
3 Then were they glad their Lord to know,
