Welcome, Sweet Day of Rest
By Isaac Watts (1674–1748)
 
  WELCOME, sweet day of rest
    That saw the Lord arise;
Welcome to this reviving breast,
    And these rejoicing eyes!
 
  The King himself comes near,        5
    And feasts his saints to-day;
Here may we sit and see him here,
    And love and praise and pray.
 
  One day amidst this place
    Where my dear God hath been,        10
Is sweeter than ten thousand days
    Of pleasurable sin.
 
  My willing soul would stay
    In such a frame as this,
And sit and sing herself away        15
    To everlasting bliss.
