C.M.

1
Welcome, most welcome, Sabbath morn,
The best of all the seven;
Lord of the Sabbath, deign to form
Our youthful hearts for heaven.

2
May we not meet in vain and part,
But have Thy special care,
As Thou didst open Lydia’s heart,
May we Thy favour share.

3
Faith and repentance Thou must give,
And love comes down from heaven;
O, may we now to Jesus live,
Since all is freely given.

4
’Twas young Abijah had the truth,
Thou didst that gift bestow,
And many more are called in youth,
And unto glory go.

5
But some have hearts unchanged within,
And this ’tis sad to tell;
For all who die in love with sin,
Must surely sink to hell.
