The Sabbath a Source of Joy

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Oft as this peaceful day shall come,
Lord, raise my thoughts from earthly things,
And bear them to my heavenly home,
On faith and hope's celestial wings
Till the last gleam of life decay,
In one eternal sabbath day.
