Text:  Dobell's "Selection"  1806
Music:  Samuel S. Wesley  1839
Tune:  Harewood
OHT Incipit:  56712 17543 21321

Welcome, delightful morn,
Thou day of sacred rest;
I hail thy kind return;
LordLord, make these moments blest:
From the low train of mortal toys,
I soar to reach immortal joys.

Now may the King descend
And fill His throne of grace:
Thy sceptre, Lord, extend,
While saints address Thy face;
Let sinners feel Thy quickening word,
And learn to know and fear the Lord.

Descend, celestial Dove,
With all Thy quickening powers;
Disclose a Saviour's love,
And bless these sacred hours;
Then shall my soul new life obtain,
Nor Sabbath's e'er be spent in vain.
