Come, let us join with one accord
In hymns around the throne:
This is the day our rising Lord
Has made and called His own.

This is the day that God has blest,
The brightest of the sev’n,
Type of that ev­er­last­ing rest
The saints enjoy in Heav’n.

Then let us in His name sing on,
And hasten to that day
When our Re­deem­er shall come down,
And shadows pass away.

Not one, but all our days below
Let us in hymns employ;
And in our Lord rejoicing,
Go to His eter­nal joy.
