Holy Sabbath, day of rest;
By our great Redeemer blest;
When in majesty He rose,
More than conqueror o’er His foes.

Refrain

Softly now we hear Him say,
Turn from earthly toil away;
Let your pray’rs to Heaven ascend;
I will keep you to the end.

Day of worship, hallowed hour,
May the Spirit’s quick’ning pow’r
Give us grace and strength anew,
While our journey we pursue.

Refrain

Holy Sabbath, may thy light,
Pure and holy, calm and bright,
Lift our hearts to God above,
Spring of joy, of life, of love.

Refrain
