This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.@Psalm 118:24

Harold Marlow, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O day so wondrous,
We take thee to us,
And wear thy glory
In all our hearts;
Thou givest gladness,
Thou soothest sadness,
Thro’ thy bright sunshine,
All care departs.

Refrain

Sing, sing, sing of His glory;
Sing, sing, sing while we may;
God gives, God gives the sunshine,
He gives, He gives the day!

Behold about us,
Beneath, above us,
All nature trembles
Throbbing with life;
We sing confessing
God’s fullest blessing,
O day so holy,
Calming all strife.

Refrain

Then join our voices
In happy chorus,
His angels watch us
And with us sing;
They are about us,
Tho’ far above us,
And like the sunshine,
God’s blessing bring.
