Hymn 499
O happy day that fixed my choice

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. 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, 'Tis done--the great transaction's done; I am my Lord's, and He is mine; He drew me and I followed on, Rejoiced to own the call divine. Now rest, my long-divided heart, Fixed on this blissful center, rest; Here have I found a nobler part, Here heavenly pleasures fill my breast. High heaven that hears 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.
