SS&S 273: THE DAWN OF GOD'S DEAR SABBATH

SS&S 273: THE DAWN OF GOD'S DEAR SABBATH

1. The dawn of God's dear Sabbath

Breaks o'er the earth again.

As some sweet summer morning

After a night of pain :

It comes as cooling showers

To some exhausted land,

As shade of clustered palm trees

'Mid weary wastes of sand.

 

2. O day, when earthly sorrow

Is merged in heavenly joy,

And trial changed to blessing

That foe may not destroy ;

When want is turned to fulness,

And weariness to rest ;

And pain to wondrous rapture,

Upon the Saviour's breast.

 

3. Lord, we would bring for offering,

Though marred with earthly soil,

A week of earnest labor,

Of steady, faithful toil ;

Fair fruits of self-denial,

Of strong, deep love to Thee,

Fostered by Thine own Spirit

In our humility.

 

4. And we would bring our burden

Of sinful thought and deed,

In Thy pure presence kneeling,

From bondage to be freed ;

Our hearts' most bitter sorrow

For all Thy work undone,------

So many talents wasted,

So few bright laurels won!

 

5. So be it, Lord, forever:

Oh, may we evermore,

In Jesus' holy presence,

His blessed name adore :

Upon His peaceful Sabbath,

Within His temple walls,

Type of the stainless worship

In Zion's golden halls ;

 

6. So that in joy and gladness

We reach that home at last ;

When life's a short week of sorrow,

And sin and strife are past ;

When angel-hands have gathered

The fair ripe fruit for Thee,

O Father, Lord, Redeemer,

Most Holy Trinity.
