O Happy Day

I believe this a favorite song to many. ("O Happy Day") This song began as a hymn in the mid-18th century ("Oh happy day that fixed my choice") by Phillip Doddridge. The song has been recorded by many of other artists.
Why not take a few minutes to rejoice in Christ.




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 every day:
Happy day, happy day,
When Jesus washed my sins away!

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.

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.

Now rest, my long-divided heart,
Fixed on this blissful center, rest;
Here have I found a nobler part;
Here heav’nly pleasures fill my breast.

High heav’n, that heard the solemn vow,
That vow renewed shall daily hear,
Till in life’s latest hour I bow
And bless in death a bond so dear.

I first heard of this song in Sister Act 2----thru the most unlikely "venue."
I like the lyrics but because I first heard it on a movie that was way too far from a spiritual concept, I didn't really love it that much when I first heard it.

Now it's presented in a different way, I appreciate it much better now.
Thanks for sharing.
