    Verse 1
    How sweet it is this holy day
    A day most beautiful
    To set aside all earthly care
    And lift our thoughts to heaven.

    Verse 2
    How sweet it is to have the joy
    That comes through pard'ning grace!
    To say with boldness, as a son
    ?Father who art in heaven?.

    Verse 3
    To hear the words that brings sweet peace
    Sent through Thy servant's mouth
    A broken heart that weeps for sin,
    And sees the gates of heav'n.

    Verse 4
    And if you come to Jesus Christ
    To wash your sins away
    The one who knows and sees the heart
    Will send abundant grace.

    Verse 5
    Welcome, thou holy day, welcome,
    A day most beautiful
    Assembled here are we to pay
    Our vows and gratitude.
