O Happy Day (Rockingham) 266t

Tune: Lowell Mason, 1830
Lyrics: Philip Doddridge, 1755
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
O happy day that fix’d my choice
On Thee, my Saviour and my God!
Well may this glowing heart rejoice,
And tell its raptures all abroad.

Tis done, the great transaction's done,
I am the Lord's and He is mine;
He drew me, and I followed on,
Charmed to confess the voice divine.
This tune was called Gravity by B. F. White.
