O Day Of Rest And Gladness

O Day Of Rest And Gladness

C. Wordsworth

Verse 1
O day of rest and gladness O day of joy and light
O balm of care and sadness
Most beautiful most bright
On thee the high and lowly
Through ages joined in tune
singing holy, holy, holy
To the great God triune


Verse 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


Verse 3
Thou art port protected
From storms that round is rise
A garden intersected
With streams of paradise
Thou art a cooling fountain
In life dey dreary sand
From thee, like pisgah’s mountain
We view our promised land


Verse 4
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 to things above


Verse 5
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.

Verse 6
New graces ever gaining
From, this our day of rest
We reach the rest remaining
To spirit of the blest
To holy ghost be praises
To father, and to son
The church her voice upraises
To thee, blest three in one
