Words by Philip Doddridge (1702-1751)

1. Lord of the Sabbath, hear our vows,

On this thy day, in thy house,

And own, as grateful sacrifice,

The songs which from thy servants rise.

2. Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love;

But there’s a nobler rest above;

To that our laboring souls aspire,

With ardent hope and strong desire.

3. No more fatigue, no more distress,

Nor sin nor hell, shall reach the place;

No sighs shall mingle with the songs,

Which warble from immortal tongues.

4. No rude alarms of raging foes,

No cares to break the long repose;

No midnight shade, no clouded sun,

But sacred, high, eternal noon.
