O Happy Day! (words only)
O happy day! when we first felt Our souls with deep contrition melt,
And saw our sins of crimson guilt, All cleansed by blood on Calv’ry spilt.
O happy day! when first Thy love Began our grateful hearts to move;
And gazing on Thy wondrous Cross, We saw all else as worthless dross.
O happy day! when we no more shall grieve Thee whom our souls adore,
When sorrows, conflicts, fears shall cease, And all our trials end in peace.
O happy day! when we shall see And fix our longing eyes on Thee,
On Thee, our Light, our Life, our Love, Our All below, our Heav’n above!
O happy day of cloudless light! Eternal day without a night;
Lord, when shall we its dawning see, And spend it all in praising Thee?
