1046. The Lord's Day

1 O day of all the days the best,
When—laid aside each earthly care—
We meet with God’s dear saints so blest,
And in their praise and worship share.

2 Not by a rigid code we’re bound
With death to all who disobey;
But through God’s love within us found,
We keep this precious worship day.

3 This day our Lord in triumph rose
To give us hope beyond the grave;
He conquered all our many foes,
And proved His mighty pow’r to save.

4 So in remembrance we will keep
This blessed resurrection day,
The pledge of all who wake or sleep,
That they shall live through Him for aye.
