Belmont (C.M.) v3/G
BLEST DAY OF GOD, MOST CALM, MOST BRIGHT
Blest day of God, most calm, most bright,
The seventh, the best of days;
The labourer’s rest, the saint’s delight,
The day of prayer and praise.
The firstfruits oft a blessing prove
To all the sheaves behind;
And they the day of God who love,
A happy week shall find.
This day I must with God appear;
For, Lord, the day is Thine;
Help me to spend it in Thy fear,
And thus to make it mine.
