They tell us the fourth command,     Containing the Sabbath decree. Is abolished in every land,     And all from its yoke are free; If, to solve these queries we ask,     When, where and how was it done? They commence the difficult task,     But leave it where they begun! They tell us the onward roll     Of Time […]

1. A week without the Sabbath is like a candle with no flame, A week without the Sabbath, like a picture with no frame; A week without the Sabbath is like a house that’s not a home, A week without the Sabbath, oh may it never come! 2. A week without the Sabbath is like […]

1. Now the Sabbath day is nigh, God’s rest we will embrace;     As the sun sets in the sky, the dawn of Sabbath breaks. For God’s blessing we will seek within these sacred hours,     To receive His matchless love and His creative pow’r. Refrain Stars of evening sky rejoice,     All creatures great and small; Lift […]

1. My life was just a tangled knot, all twisted out of shape     From cares and problems, till I knew I needed to escape. I brooded, and I searched and thought, then plann’d so carefully     A brilliant solution, that with God’s help, I’d be free. 2. The plan was mine, but with God’s help I […]

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. Welcome sweet day of rest,     To God my thoughts arise; Welcome to this reviving breast,     And these rejoicing eyes,     And these rejoicing eyes. 2. The King Himself draws near,     And feasts His saints today; Here we may sit, and see Him here,     And love and praise and pray,     And love and praise and pray. […]

1. In selfishness the world has breached the wall of God’s good law.     With fasting and with pray’r we’re called to fix this fatal flaw. What is the fast that I will choose? A doubt-filled critic’s leav’n?     Controlling others, unbelief; is this the fast God’s giv’n? 2. In order to repair this breach, build up […]

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. The God that made the earth,     And all the worlds on high, Who gave all creatures birth,     In earth, and sea, and sky; Six days were in this work employed, The seventh was a rest enjoyed. 2. The Sabbath day was blest,     And hallow’d, sanctified; It was Jehovah’s rest,     And so it must abide. […]
