#207: O Happy Day!

Standard

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

1

O happy day that fixed my choice

On Thee, my savior and my God!

Well may this glowing heart rejoice

And tell its raptures all abroad.

CHORUS

Happy day, happy day, When Jesus washed my sins away!

He taught me how to watch and pray And live rejoicing ev’ry day;

Happy day, happy day, When Jesus washed my sins away!

2

O happy bond that seals my vows

To Him who merits all my love!

Let cheerful anthems fill His house,

While to that sacred shrine I move.

CHORUS

3

‘Tis done, the great transaction’s done —

I am my Lord’s and He is mine;

He drew me, and I followed on,

Charmed to confess the voice divine.

CHORUS

4

Now rest, my long divided heart,

Fixed on this blissful center, rest;

Nor ever from my Lord depart,

With Him of ev’ry good possessed.

CHORUS
