Hail, sacred day of earthly rest

1. Hail! sacred day of earthly rest,
From toil and trouble free:
Hail! day of light, that bringest light
And joy to me.

2. A holy stillness, breathing ca
On all the world around,
Uplifts my soul, O God, to Thee,
Where rest is found.

3. On all I think, or say, or do,
A ray of light divine
Is shed, O God, this day by Thee,
For it is Thine.

4. No sound of jarring strife is heard,
As weekly labors cease;
No voice, but those that sweetly sing
Sweet songs of peace.

5. For those who sings with saints below
Glad songs of heavenly love,
Shall sing—when songs on earth have ceased—
With saints above.

6. Accept, O God, my hymn of praise,
That Thou, this day, hast given
Sweet foretaste of that endless day
Of rest in Heaven.
