1 O day of rest and gladness, O day of joy and light,
O balm for care and sadness, Most beautiful, most bright;
On you the high and lowly, Through ages joined in tune,
Sing, "Holy, holy, holy," To the great God triune.
2 On you, at earth's creation, The light first had its birth;
On you, for our salvation, Christ rose from depths of earth;
On you, our Lord victorious The Spirit sent from heav'n;
And thus on you, most glorious, A three-fold light was giv'n.
3 Today on weary nations The heav'nly manna falls;
To holy convocations The silver trumpet calls,
Where gospel light is glowing With pure and radiant beams
And living water flowing With soul-refreshing streams.
4 New graces ever gaining From this our day of rest,
We reach the rest remaining To spirits of the blest.
To Holy Ghost be praises, To Father, and to Son;
The Church its voice upraises To you, blest Three in One.
