SABBATH.

487

HYMN 487, 7s.

The Sabbath in the Sanctuary.

m 1 O AFELY, through another week,

O God has brought us on our way ;—
Let us now a blessing seek,

Waiting in his courts to-day;—
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest.

2 "While we seek supplies of grace,

Through the dear Redeemer's name,
Show thy reconciled face,

Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest, this day, in thee.

mf 3 Here we come thy name to praise;

Let us feel thy presence near;
May thy glory meet our eyes,

While we in thy house appear;
Here afford us, Lord! a taste
Of our everlasting feast.

f 4 May the gospel's joyful sound

Conquer sinners—comfort saints;
Make the fruits of grace abound,

Bring relief from all complaints:
Thus let all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the church above.

HYMN 488, S. M.

The Lord's Day and public Worship

1 WELCOME! sweet day of rest,

n That saw the Lord arise! Welcome to this reviving breast, And these rejoicing eyes!

2 The King himself comes near, *

And feasts his saints to-day;
Here we may sit, and see him here,
And love, and praise, and pray.

3 One day, amidst the place

Where my dear God hath been,

Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Of pleasurable sin.

4 My willing soul would stay,
In such a frame as this,—

< And sit and sing herself away
f To everlasting bliss.
