Joyful be the hours today
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Joyful be the hours today.

"O come, let us sing unto the Lord." (Psalm 95,1)

1. Joyful be the hours today;
  joyful let the season be.
Let us sing, for well we may;
  Jesus, we will sing of thee.

2. Should thy people silent be,
  then the very stones would sing.
What a debt we owe to thee,
  thee, our Saviour and our King.

3. Meet it is that we should own
  what thy grace has done for us;
saved we are by grace alone,
  and we joy to have it thus.

4. 'Tis thy grace alone can save;
  every blessing comes from thee;
all we have, and hope to have,
  all we are, and hope to be.

5. Thine the name to sinners dear;
  thine the name all names before;
blessed here and everywhere,
  blessed now and evermore.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 457 – under the heading "Lord's Day".
