Remember the Sabbath Day

Representative Text

1 The Sabbath comes, with holy light,
And its rest we gladly greet:
And unto all, on its peaceful wings,
There is borne this message sweet.

Remember, remember,
Remember the Sabbath day,
And keep it holy, holy to the Lord,
Remember the Sabbath day.

2 It calls for peace in heart and home,
And for rest from toil and care:
It calls for thanks, that are sweet to lift,
For the blessings that we share. [Chorus]

3 It calls for joy and simple faith,
As we meet to praise and pray:
It calls for thought that will sweetly flow
With the teachings of the day. [Chorus]

4 It calls for zeal in doing well,
And for loving deed and word:
It calls, in truth, for a day well spent
In the service of the Lord. [Chorus]
