1Thine holy day’s returning
Our hearts exult to see;
And with devotion burning,
Ascend, our God, to Thee.
Today with purest pleasure,
Our thoughts from earth withdraw;
We search for sacred treasure,
We learn Thy holy law.
2We join to sing Thy praises,
God of the Sabbath day;
Each voice in gladness raises
Its loudest, sweetest lay.
Thy richest mercies sharing,
O fill us with Thy love,
By grace our souls preparing
For nobler praise above.
Jude1:24Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
