1.  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 the week the best,

Emblem of eternal rest.

2.  Mercies multiplied each hour

Through the week, our praise demand;

Guarded by Thy mighty power,

Fed and guided by Thy hand;

Though ungrateful we have been,

Only made returns of sin;

Though ungrateful we have been,

Only made returns of sin.

3.  While we pray for pardoning grace,

Through the dear Redeemer’s Name,

Show Thy reconciled face,

Take away our sin and shame;

From our worldly care set free,

May we rest this day in Thee;

From our worldly cares set free,

May we rest this day in Thee.

4.  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.

5.  May the Gospel’s joyful sound

Conquer sinners, comfort saints;

Make 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.
