2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest; No mortal cares shall seize my breast; O may my heart in tune be found, Like David's harp of solemn sound.
4 Lord, I shall share a glorious part, When grace hath well refined my heart, And fresh supplies of joy are shed, Like holy oil, to cheer my head.
3 My heart shall triumph in my Lord,        5 Then shall I see, and hear, and know
And bless His works, and bless His word; All I desired or wished below; Thy works of grace, how bright they shine, And every power find sweet employ, How deep Thy counsels, how divine.            In that eternal world of joy.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1710
2 This day may our devotion rise As grateful incense to the skies, And heaven that sweet repose bestow Which none but they who feel it know!
[ 3 That peaceful calm within the breast Is the sure pledge of heavenly rest,
Which for the church of God remains,— The end of cares, the end of pains.
4 In holy duties let the day, In holy pleasures, pass away: How sweet a Sabbath thus to spend, In hope of one that ne'er shall end.
Rev. J. Stennett, 1712
