    Verse 1
    Sweet is the work, my God, my King,
    To praise Thy Name, give thanks and sing;
    To show Thy love by morning light
    And talk of all Thy truth at night.

    Verse 2
    Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
    No mortal cares disturb my breast;
    O may my heart in tune be found
    Like David's harp of solemn sound!

    Verse 3
    My heart shall triumph in my Lord
    And bless His works, and bless His word:
    Thy works of grace, how bright they shine!
    How deep Thy counsels, how divine!

    Verse 4
    Lord I shall share a glorious part,
    When grace has well refined my heart;
    And fresh supplies of joy are shed,
    Like holy oil to cheer my head.

    Verse 5
    Then shall I see, and hear, and know
    All I desired and wished below;
    And every power find sweet employ
    In that eternal world of joy.
