Representative Text

1 Holy Sabbath, sacred rest,
Welcome to each waiting breast;
Cheering hour that points away
To eternity's glad day.

2 Ever since creation's birth,
Thou hast been to cheer our earth;
When the course of time began,
Thou wast made, and made for man.

3 While thou bringest peaceful rest,
Man by thee is doubly blest;
Thou dost tend our thoughts to raise
To our great Creator's praise.

4 Thus drawn nearer to our Lord,
Hearts attuned to sweet accord,
We shall hail the glorious day
When all flesh shall own thy sway.
