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 tells us of the beautiful Sabbath God blessed for us:
Hymn 40 – The Dawn of God’s Dear Sabbath,
Hymn 381 – Holy Sabbath Day of Rest,
Hymn 385 – Crowning Jewel of Creation,
Hymn 387 – Come O Sabbath Day,
Hymn 388 – Don’t Forget the Sabbath,
Hymn 390 – We Love Thy Sabbath, Lord and
Hymn 393 – Lord of the Sabbath. And, then the theme of creation in
Hymn 320 – Lord of Creation and again
Hymn 385 – Crowning Jewel of Creation.
Sunday’s study leads us to
Hymn 2 – All Creatures of Our God and King.
The Sabbath hymns for the Memory Text are again in force for the Monday’s study time and on into rest of the week.
Tuesday shows that
God Will Take Care of You – Hymn 99. We find manna is the substance that God provides for all. This is in
Hymn 405 – O God, Unseen, Yet Ever Near.
“We find in the Sabbath a symbol of both Creation and Redemption” (Wednesday) and this is sung in
Hymn 394 – Far From All Care, especially in the last verse.
Blessings for a wonderful week ahead.
