Rest

1. It is vanity to stay up when the working time is done;     It is vanity to labor when God puts to rest the sun. God commands us to be trustful, and to sleep within His arms;     Then to labor without ceasing cannot help, but only harm. 2. When the work seems not completed, it’s […]

1. The anguished human spirit cries for rest, stability and peace;     Deliverance from haunting fear and want, and blessed sweet release. This is the yearning wish of ev’ry soul, yet, pressed on ev’ry hand     By constant dread of want, disease, distress; grim loss of life, unplanned; Disasters dreadful, costly, unannounced; and holocaust of war,     The […]

1. You have a rest to give us: from our own works to cease;     To see You working in us, and in those works find peace. We want to give our lives now and hold them back no more;     The Sabbath– it will help us to magnify Your pow’r. 2. To overcome all evil, that […]

1. Come yourselves apart now, and rest in My care;     You’re so tired and aching from the load that you bear. I know that you’re burdened by life’s heavy toll,     But trust in My comfort, to My promises hold. 2. I did not create you to work until worn.     Give up that idea, of My […]

Come unto Me, you who work so hard,     And whose burdens are so heavy; And I will give rest to you,     I will give rest to you. Now take My yoke upon your shoulders,     Come and learn of Me; For I am meek, I am meek and lowly in heart,     And you will find a […]

1. How happy is the man who has chosen wisdom’s ways,     And offer’d up his life to his God in pray’r and praise; His God and his Bible are all that he desires,     To holiness of heart he continually aspires; In poverty he’s happy for he knows he has a Friend,     Who never will forsake […]

1. In the beginning God set up a school:     The classroom was Eden and love was the rule; The students, at first, were a woman and man,     And keeping the garden was part of the plan. In working, they learned how God worked to make man;     In serving, they learned how God first had served […]

Holiness, holiness, holiness, holiness,     Holiness is not rapture: It is an entire surrender of the will to God; It is living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God; It is doing the will of our heavenly Father; It is trusting God in trial, in darkness as well as in the light; It […]

1. Welcome, the Sabbath hour,     The holy and the blest! With sweet, subduing pow’r,     It calms the soul to rest; And hope and love spring up anew,     To cheer us on our journey through. 2. Our only care and aim     Throughout this hallow’d day, To glorify Your name,     And grateful honors pay; Advance the glory […]
