1 O sweet Sabbath bells!
A message of musical chiming
Ye bring us from God, And we know what you say;
Now rising, now falling,
So tunefully calling
His children to seek Him, and praise Him today.
2 They day we love best!
The brightest and best of the seven,
The pearl of the week, and the light of our way;
We hold it a treasure,
And count it a pleasure,
To welcome its dawning, and praise Him to-day.
3 O sweet Sabbath rest!
The gift of our Father in heaven;
A herald sent down from the home far away,
With peace for the weary,
And joy for the dreary,
Then, oh! let us thank Him, and praise Him to-day.
