Come, let us join with one ac­cord
In hymns around the throne:
This is the day our ris­ing Lord
Has made and called His own.

This is the day that God has blest,
The bright­est of the sev’n,
Type of that ev­er­last­ing rest
The saints enjoy in Heav’n.

Then let us in His name sing on,
And hasten to that day
When our Re­deem­er shall come down,
And sha­dows pass away.

Not one, but all our days be­low
Let us in hymns em­ploy;
And in our Lord re­joic­ing,
Go to His eter­nal joy.
