It is the solemn Sabbath day,
Let praise to God ascend!
In holiness thy soul array,
And worldly thoughts suspend.
Come forth, ye weary sons of care,
Toil-worn and grief-opprest;
To heaven send a grateful pray’r,
For these calm hours of rest.
Let not the poorest of ye ask,
Of Providence long tried;
If I forego my daily task,
Whose hand will bread provide?
Remember that celestial food
To Israel ordained;
When Mercy double portions strewed,
Lest Sabbath be profaned.
With ten-fold gifts will God repay,
The transient loss incurred;
But tremble ye who disobey,
The mandate of the Lord.
