Welcome to the commencement of the Third Quarter’s Sabbath School lesson studies.
Having scanned through the lesson quarterly, there are so many hymns from which to choose a theme. In effect, there is a commencing theme hymn which changes through the quarter to the finale theme hymn. To start with, we could use
Hymn 552 – The Lord’s My Shepherd or
Hymn 545 – Savior, Like a Shepherd. Somewhere in the middle of the quarter one could change the theme and add in
Hymn 159 – On a Hill Far Away which is where we complete our studies in Lesson 13.
Sunday has children stating clearly that “God is love”:
Hymn 76 – O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go,
Hymn 77 – O Love of God Most Full,
Hymn 78 – For God So Loved Us,
Hymn 79 – O Love of God, How Strong and True!,
Hymn 116 – Of the Father’s Love Begotten,
Hymn 148 – O Love How Deep How Broad,
Hymn 162 – Wondrous Love,
Hymn 179 – The Wonders of Redeeming Love,
Hymn 190 – Jesus Love Me,
Hymn 191 – Love Divine,
Hymn 197 – The King of Love My Shepherd Is, and
Hymn 359 – God Is Love.
There are many more hymns about God’s wondrous love that could still be added to the list above!
The paths of righteousness spoken of in Monday’s study can be found in
Hymn 552 – The Lord’s My Shepherd and
Hymn 546 – The Lord’s My Shepherd.
The valley detours showing the types of paths we may walk along, is also in
Hymn 447 – Long Upon the Mountains (verse 1) in contrast to the paths in
Hymn 456 – My Lord and I (verse 2) and
Hymn 631 – When On Life a Darkness Falls (verse 1).
What a wonder David puts before us (Wednesday) the preparation of a banquet for his enemies, just as Jesus will do for us in Heaven:
Hymn 104 – My Shepherd Will Supply My Needs and
Hymn 546/552 – The Lord’s My Shepherd.
We see our God with unfailing love, pursuing “me all the days of my life” (Thursday) where we find His arms are open wide:
Hymn 289 – The Savior Is Waiting (verse 3). It is there that we are able to be
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms – Hymn 469, and find He will shield us:
Hymn 499 – What a Friend We Have in Jesus (verse 3).

Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing, but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
