(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
Safely through another week God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek, Waiting in His courts today:
Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest;
Day of all teh week the mest, EMblem of eternal rest.
While we pray for pard’ning grace Thru the dear Redeemer’s name,
Show Thy reconciled face, Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set free, May we rest this day in Thee;
From our wordly cares set free, May we rest this day in Thee.
Here we come Thy name to praise — Let us feel thy presence near;
May Thy glory meet our eyes While we in Thy house appear;
Here afford us, Lord, a taste Of our everlasting feast;
Here afford us, Lord, a taste Of our everlasting feast.
May Thy gospel’s joyful sound Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound, Bring relief for all complaints;
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, Till we join the Church above;
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, Till we join the Church above.
