Welcome, sweet day of rest,
That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes.

Jesus Himself comes near,
And feasts His saints today;
Here we may sit and see Him here;
And love, and praise, and pray.

One day amid the place
Where God, my Savior’s been,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Of pleasure and of sin.
