381 - Holy Sabbath Day of Rest

Holy Sabbath day of rest,
By our Master richly blest
God created and divine,
Set aside for holy time


Yes, the holy Sabbath rest,

By our God divinely blest,

It to us a sign shall be

Throughout all eternity.

Seek not pleasures by this earth
With its folly, noise, and mirth
There are better things in store,
Over on the other shore.
As the Sabbath draweth on
Friday eve at set of sun
Christian household then should meet,
Sing and pray at Jesus’ feet,
Asking Him for saving grace,
Also vict’ry in the race,
And to help us by His pow’r,
To keep holy every hour.
