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.
We could add to the theme
Hymn 529 – Under His Wings. Each week of study this quarter, gives more and more of showing God’s deepest care for us, His children. As God’s children we find out about the Biblical family growing pains, and this still happens today. Yet, we are still “under His wings”.
The Memory Text opens our singing this week with
Hymn 515 – The Lord Is My Light.
It is in
Hymn 386 – The Scared Anthem we find “The Lord of Sabbaths wills renewal for the weary earth and healing for our ills” just as we are looking at the ‘Healing Rest’ we need in Sunday’s study time.
Our ‘Root Treatment’ is in the forgiveness for which we long –
Hymn 299 – Forgive Our Sins As We Forgive (Monday).
When we are ‘Too Tired to Run’ anymore, as was Elijah, the understanding comes to us of what our faith can give, as in
Hymn 163 – At The Cross. It is there that
I Must Tell Jesus – Hymn 485 all of my troubles. His compassion then gives us rest. After our rest, we can sing
Praise Ye the Father – Hymn 70 in which we praise the Saviour, as great is His compassion.
Blessings for a wonderful week ahead.

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.
