1. Welcome sweet day of rest,
To God my thoughts arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
And these rejoicing eyes,
And these rejoicing eyes.
2. The King Himself draws near,
And feasts His saints today;
Here we may sit, and see Him here,
And love and praise and pray,
And love and praise and pray.
3. One day in such a place,
Where You, my God, are seen,
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
Where You have never been,
Where You have never been.
4. My willing soul would stay
In such a place as this,
And sit and sing herself away
To everlasting bliss,
To everlasting bliss.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748) wrote the words to this hymn, although I made a few minor changes. The tune is adapted from part of Handel’s Messiah, “He Shall Feed His Flock.”
