Representative Text

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

Refrain:
Yes, the holy Sabbath rest,
By our God divinely blest,
It to us a sign shall be
Throughout all eternity.

2 Seek not pleasures of this earth,
With its folly, noise, and mirth;
There are better things in store
Over on the other shore. [Refrain]

3 As the Sabbath draweth on
In the eve at set of sun,
Christian household then should meet,
Sing, and pray at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

4 Asking Him for saving grace,
Also vict’ry in the race,
And to help us by His pow’r,
To keep holy ev’ry hour. [Refrain]
