506 (L.M.) Joseph Stennett

Another six days' work is done;

Another Sabbath is begun:

Return, my soul, enjoy thy rest,

Improve the day that God hath blest.

Come, bless the Lord, whose love assigns

So sweet a rest to weary minds,

Provides an antepast of heav'n,

And gives this day the food of sev'n.

Oh that our thoughts and thanks may rise

As grateful incense to the skies!

And draw from heav'n that sweet repose

Which but the one who feels it knows.

This heav'nly calm within the breast

Is the dear pledge of glorious rest,

Which for the church of God remains —

The end of cares, the end of pains.

With joy, great God, Thy works we view,

In various scenes, both old and new;

With praise we think on mercies past,

With hope we future blessings taste.

In holy duties let the day

In holy comforts pass away;

The Sabbath thus we love to spend,

In hope of one which ne'er shall end.
