The Lords-Day

On Rev . I. 10.

This is the Day of Rest , whereon
Our Lord Rose from the Dead;
The Price of mans Redemption ,
This Day was fully paid.

This is to us, the Joyful Day,
Which our Lord made His own ,
By his most Wonderful Display
Of Pow'r and Grace thereon.

The Jewish Sabbath Laid Asleep
With our Lord under Earth,
Directs us Now This Day to keep
Of our Lords Second Birth .

This is the Day , our Lord now chose
Thereon still to Appear ;
The Day , for Him preferr'd by Those
That His Apostles were.

It is Declar'd, The Lords-Day , Now,
Holy unto the Lord
It will no Worldly Thought allow,
No Worldly Work or Word .

Now, Lord , on this Thy Day , dispence,
Thy Spirit unto me:
And by thy Spirits Influence
Let me now Acted be.

This Day , Oh! Spirit , from on High,
Make thou a Mean and Sign ,
Of that Great Sabbacism , when I
Shall in thy Glory shine!
