SDAH388 – Don’t Forget the Sabbath

​      

1

Don’t forget the Sabbath,        The Lord our God hath blest,    Of all the week the brightest,    Of all the week the best;            It brings repose from labor,       It tells of joy divine,                  Its beam of light descending,   With heavenly beauty shine.

Refrain 

Welcome, welcome,

Ever welcome,

Blessed Sabbath day,

Welcome, welcome,

Ever welcome,

Blessed Sabbath day.


Keep the Sabbath holy,      
And worship Him today,  Who said to His desciple,        “I am the living way;”            And if we meekly follow       our Savior here below,       He’ll give us of the fountain  Whose streams eternal flow. 




Day of sacred pleasure!            It golden hours we’ll spend      In thankful hymns to Jesus,  The children’s dear Friend;      O gentle loving, Savior,        How good and kind Thou art,  How precious is Thy promise  To dwell in every heart! 



Happy sabbath God’s children.




WHY PRAISE

Want to shout
Want to praise.

As a tender shoot with
slender shaky stem
As a tender lamb with
trembling limbs

Those scared tender Hands
tendered tender shoot
With springs of living love
slender stem changed garments
to thick strong trunk

With watchful loving eyes
the lamb grew strong ready to obey the Shepherd who for Love became
The Cleansing Lamb

Yes I shout
Yes I praise
For The Life Tree
The Shepherd
Is deserving of it
