Rest. The word used most frequently in our Sabbath School Lesson pamphlet this quarter. “Thou shalt rest, Thou shalt rest!” These are words repeated each verse of
Hymn 387 – Come, O Sabbath Day, our theme hymn for this quarter.
There Is a Place of Quiet Rest
Near to the Heart of God – Hymn 495 opens our singing this week from the very first sentence on Sabbath afternoon’s introduction to this weeks’ study. This is followed by
Hymn 503 – A Quiet Place.
For the “Worn and Weary”,
Hymn 370 – Christ for the World shows in verse 1 that Christ heals. The weary one is sung about in
Hymn 441 – I Saw One Weary. Further worn out people are sung of in
Hymn 453 – We Have Heard and
Hymn 465 – I Heard the Voice of Jesus. It is then that in
Hymn 626 – In a Little While We’re Going Home we see the wayworn feet find the rest beyond……in that City bright and fair.
Just as King David was given his “Wake-Up Call”, so we can wake up in singing
Hymn 611 – Awake, My Soul.
King David confessed his sins. We can see this in
Hymn 49 – Savior, Breathe an Evening Blessing and then know and feel the forgiveness in
Hymn 187 – Jesus What a Friend For Sinners. The result is seeing
The Cleansing Wave – Hymn 332 as in King David’s reference to cleansing with hyssop. The request of joy and gladness is then granted –
Hymn 27 – Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart! and
Hymn 34 – Wake the Song of Joy and Gladness.
We can be very thankful for the
Marvelous Grace – Hymn 109 in which there is pardon and cleansing – 1 John 1:9.
