Jane's Poetry Book

Sabbath Morning

Safely through another week,
    God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek,
    Waiting in his courts to day:
Day of all the week the best;
Emblem of eternal rest.

While we seek supplies of grace,
    Though the dear Redeemer's name;
Shew thy reconciling face;
    Take away our sin and shame:
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in thee.

Here we come thy name to praise;
    Let us feel thy presence here:
May thy glory meet our eyes,
    While we in thy house appear:
Here afford us, Lord a taste
Of our everlasting feast.

May the gospel's joyful sound
    Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Make the fruits of grace abound;
    Bring relief from all complaints;
Shew us all our sabbath's prove
Till we join the church above.
