Day of rest and gladness

EABIC Church of Salvation
Día de descanso y alegría

To-day on weary nations the heavenly manna falls...
Cae hoy el maná celestial sobre las cansadas naciones...

O Day of rest and gladness,
O day of joy and light;
O balm of care and sadness,
Most Beautiful, most bright!
On thee the high and lowly
Before th´eternal throne
Sing “Holy, Holy, Holy”,
To God the Three in One !

On thee at the creation
The light first had its birth;
On thee for our Salvation
Christ rose from depths of earth:
On thee our Lord victorious
The spirit send from Zion;
And thus on thee most glorious
A triple light was given.

Thou art a cooling fountain
In life´s dry, dreary sand;
from thee, like Pisgah´s mountain,
We view our promised land;
A day of sweet reflection,
A day of holy love,
A day of resurrection
from earth to things obove.

To-day on weary nations
The heavenly manna falls;
To holy convocations
The silver trompet calls,
Where gospel light is glowing
With pure and radiant beams,
And living water flowing
With soul-refreshing streams.

New graces ever gaining
From this our day of rest,
We reach the rest remaining
To spirits of the blest.
To Holy One be praises,
To Father and to Son;
The Church her voice upraises
To Thee, blest Three in One.
