Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	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. 

2.	Tis done--the great transaction's done; 
	I am my Lord's, and He is mine; 
	He drew me and I followed on, 
	Rejoicing in the call divine.

3.	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.

4.	High heav'n 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. 

	Happy day, happy day, 
	When Jesus washed my sins away! 
	He taught me how to watch and pray, 
	And live rejoicing ev'ry day; 
	Happy day, happy day, 
	When Jesus washed my sins away.
