222. The day of rest once more comes round

1 The day of rest once more comes round,
A day to all believers dear;
The silver trumpets seem to sound,
That call the tribes of Israel near.

2 Oh, hasten, Lord, the day when those
Who know thee here shall see thy face;
When suffering shall forever close,
And they shall reach their destined place.
