Sabbath Song


I was glad when they said unto me, 
Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Psalm 122:1

Praise God for goodness granting, nay, commanding Sabbath rest
Praise Him for the implanting and expounding of His Word
He beckons us to gather, there to be divinely blessed
And keep the hope within us anchored to truth undeterred
As we worship together, our Father, Saviour, Friend
And exhort one another to be faithful to the end

Praise God for invitations to come to His house to pray
To join the celebration that will fill eternity
To share in the communion of all who await The Day
Of glorious reunion when face to face we shall see
God who so loved the world He gave His Son to pay sin’s debt
And save us from death’s hopeless grave; oh come, lest we forget

Lest we forget God’s faithfulness, love’s favors and mercies
Lest we fall prey to hatefulness so prevalent and bold
Lest lie by lie and vice by vice we drift from his decrees
Lest we forget His sacrifice and our love grows cold
Lest we, no longer glad to go to the house of the Lord
Miss the precious implanting and expounding of His Word
