1 Sweetly the Sabbath bell steals on the air;
That in the house of God
Bids us appear.
"Children of God," it seems
Softly to say,
"Haste to your Father's house, hasten to pray."
2 Oft as the Sabbath chimes summon to pray,
May we their holy call
That, when the last sad knell
For us shall sound,
Ready our Judge to meet we may be found.
