501 (L.M.) Slade

Come, dearest Lord, and bless this day;

Come, bear our thoughts from earth away.

Now let our noblest passions rise

With ardour to their native skies.

Come, Holy Spirit, all divine,

With rays of light upon us shine,

And let our waiting souls be blest

On this sweet day of sacred rest.

Then, when our Sabbaths here are o'er,

May we arrive on Canaan's shore,

With all the ransomed there to spend

A Sabbath which shall never end.
