#71: Blessed day of Rest and Cheer

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Blessed day of rest and cheer!

Day divine, to us so dear!

When we gather, old and young,

Joining here in pray’r and song.

2

Now the week of toil is o’er,

And in peace we sit once more;

In Thy presence, gracious Lord,

Waiting for thy holy Word.

3

Lor,d our god, we seek Thy face,

Bless us with sustaining grace.

May Thy heralds ev’ry where,

Faithfully Thy truth declare.

4

Let Thy mighty word hold sway

Over all our hearts today,

Hung’ring souls, good Shepherd, feed,

Into pastures green us lead.

5

May, O Lord, the day be near,

When we pass from trials here

Into Thine eternal rest,

In the mansions of the blest.
