I Day Of Rest and Gladness

382 – O Day of Rest and Gladness

Major Key: A Flat

1
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,
Who bend before throne,
Sing, Holy, holy, holy,
To the Eternal One.

2
Thou art a port protected
From storms that round us rise;
A garden intersected
With streams of paradise;
Thou art a cooling fountain
In life’s dry, dreary sand;
From thee, like Pisgah’s mountain,
We view our promised land.

3
A day of sweet reflection,
Thou art a day of love,
A day to raise affection
From earth to things above.
New graces ever gaining
From this our day of rest,
We reach the rest remaining
In mansions of the blessed.

082 – Ni Siku Ya Furaha
“O Day Of Rest And Gladness”

1
Ni siku ya furaha, ni siku ya nuru;
Nasi twaona raha, Kuja kushukuru;
Leo watu wa Mungu, wadogo, wakubwa,
Hukaribia mbingu, lilipo baraka.

2
Leo, ndiyo bandari, nasi twawasili,
Hiyo bustani nzuri, ya nyingi fadhili:
Kijito cha baridi kimefanya ziwa,
Na kiu ikizidi, twanywa maridhawa.

3
Leo ngazi na iwe ifakayo juu,
Mawazo na yasiwe ya duniani tu;
Leo ni kujilisha chakula cha mbingu,
Na kujifurahisha kwa mambo ya Mungu.
