Christian Worship Improvement Of The Sabbath.
This day the Lord hath called his own;
O, let us, then, his praise declare,
Fix our desires on him alone,
And seek his face with fervent prayer.
Lord, in thy love we would rejoice,
Which bids the burdened soul be free,
And, with united heart and voice,
Devote these sacred hours to thee.
Now let the world’s delusive things
No more our grovelling thoughts employ
But Faith be taught to stretch her wings,
In search of heaven’s unfailing joy.
O, let these earthly Sabbaths, Lord,
Be to our lasting welfare blest;
The purest comfort here afford,
And fit us for eternal rest.
