Tune: Alexander Johnson, 1818
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal care shall seize my breast,
O may my heart in tune be found,
Like Davidís harp of solemn sound.

Then shall I share a glorious part,
When grace hath well refined my heart,
And fresh supplies of joy are shed,
Like holy oil, to cheer my head.

Then shall I see, and hear, and know
All I desired and wished below;
And evíry powír find sweet employ,
In that eternal world of joy.
