Methodist Hymnal (1876)
1 SAVIOUR, thy sacred day
Is subject to thy sway,
Made thy pleasure to fulfil;
Thou, the Son of man, alone
Canst, according to thy will,
Abrogate or change thine own.

2 The love the day designed
A blessing to mankind;
But thy more abundant grace,
Gospel grace unsearchable,
Bade the Jewish feast give place,
Fixed the Christian festival.

3 Lord of the hallowed day,
Once more thy power display;
Now returning from above,
Change it to that heavenly feast,
Sabbath of celestial love,
Sabbath of eternal rest.
