1. O happy day, that fixed my choice On Thee, my Savior 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!
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.
3. It’s done: the great transaction’s done– I am the Lord’s and He is mine; He drew me and I followed on; Charmed to confess the voice divine.
4. Now rest, my longdivided heart, Fixed on this blissful center, rest; Nor ever from my Lord depart; With Him of ev’ry good possessed.
