Happy Day

Verse 1:
O happy day that fixed my choice
On Thee, my Saviour and my God!
Well may this glowing heart rejoice,
And tell its raptures all abroad.

Refrain:
Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away;
He taught me how to watch and pray,
And live rejoicing ev’ry day;
Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away.

Verse 2:
O happy bond that seals my vows
To Him who merits all my love;
Let cheerful anthems fill His house,
While to that sacred shrine I move.

Verse 3:
‘Tis done, the great transaction’s done;
I am my Lord’s and He is mine;
He drew me, and I follow’d on,
Charm’d to confess the voice divine.

Verse 4:
Now rest, my long-divided heart,
Fix’d on this blissful centre, rest;
Nor ever from thy Lord depart,
With Him of every good possess’d.

Verse 5:
High Heaven, that heard the solemn vow,
That vow renew’d shall daily hear,
Till in life’s latest hour I bow,
And bless in death a bond so dear.

P. Doddridge/From E.F. Rimbault
