as God did from his.

THIS IS THE DAY OF REST
This is the day of rest:
Our failing strength renew;
On weary brain and troubled breast-
Shed Thou Thy freshening dew.
This is the day of peace:
Thy peace our spirits fill;
Bid Thou the blasts of discord cease,
The waves of strife be still.
This is the day of prayer:
Let earth to heaven draw near;
Lift up our hearts to seek Thee there,
Come down to meet us here.
This is the seventh of days;
Send forth Thy quick’ning breath,
And wake dead souls to love and praise,
O Vanquisher of death!
A blessèd Seventh Day Sabbath
to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
