Sweet is the work, my God, my King

Author: Isaac Watts Appears in 773 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Sweet is the work, my God, my King, To praise thy name, give thanks and sing; To show thy love by morning light, And talk of all thy truth by night. 2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest; No mortal cares shall seize my breast; O, may my heart in tune be found, Like David's harp of solemn sound! 3 My heart shall triumph in the Lord And bless his works and bless his word; Thy works of grace how bright they shine! How deep thy counsels, how divine! 4 When grace has purified my heart, Then I shall share a glorious part; And fresh supplies of joy be shed, Like holy oil to cheer my head. 5 Then shall I see and hear and know All I desired or wished below, And every hour find sweet employ In that eternal world of joy.

This is the day of sacred rest

Author: Dr. H. Clarke Appears in 4 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 This is the day of sacred rest, Which God hath sanctified and blessed, When throned in majesty he stood, And viewed his works, and called them good. 2 The heavenly host their harps employ, The sons of God gave shouts of joy; Through heaven and earth his praises rang, The morning stars together sang. 3 Come, then, ye weary souls oppressed Come and enjoy this holy rest; Let humble songs like incense rise, And prayer and praise ascend the skies.

Sweet is the Sabbath of the Lord

Author: F. S. Thorp Appears in 2 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 Sweet is the Sabbath of the Lord To those who in his law delight; Who love the precepts of his word, And tread the narrow path of right. 2 This holy day Jehovah blessed Ere sorrow, pain, or death were born, And sanctified for man his rest In glad creation's sinless morn. 3 It speaks of him whose wondrous might The heavens and earth from nothing made; Who formed the glorious orbs of light, And the deep sea's foundations laid. 4 Its sacred hours, ye saints of God, Remember with respect and love; And through obedience to his word Your love for your Creator prove. 5 And, when, immortalized we see The treasures of the new earth bright, God's holy Sabbath still shall be A source of blessing and delight.

The day of rest once more comes round

Author: Thomas Kelly Appears in 17 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 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.
