THE LORD'S DAY
36
2 Lord, in this sacred hour                                  Nor only is the day Thine own
Within Thy courts we bend,                             When man draws near to God.
And bless Thy love, and own Thy power,       4 Lordj may that holier day
Our Father and our Friend.                              Dawn on Thy servants' sight;
I 3 But Thou art not alone                                    And purer worship may we pay
In courts by mortals trod;                                In heaven's unclouded light.
Rev. Stephen Greenleaf Bullfinch, 1832
37
2 This is the day of rest:
Our failing strength renew! On weary brain and troubled breast Shed Thou Thy freshening dew. '3 This is the day of peace; Thy peace our spirits fill: Bid Thou the blast of discord cease, The waves of strife be still.
4  This is the day of prayer;
Let earth to heaven draw near: Lift up our hearts to seek Thee there; Come down to meet us here.
5  This is the first of days!
Send forth Thy quickening breath, And wake dead souls to love and praise, O Vanquisher of death!
Rev. John Ellbrton, 1868
