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.
Jesus calls to us
Come, Ye Sinners – Hymn 280 and we wish to reply
Jesus, I Come – Hymn 292.
The heavy laden are given rest in
Hymn 255 – I Cannot Tell Why (verse 2),
Hymn 368 – Watchman, Blow the Gospel Trumpet (verse 4) and the answer is in
Hymn 499 – What a Friend We Have in Jesus (verse 3) and
Hymn 476 – Burdens Are Lifted at Calvary.
The best teacher to have is Jesus who instructed us to “Take my yoke upon you”, and we may learn from Him all our lives:
Hymn 193 – Savior, Teach Me, verse 4 of
Hymn 297 – God Be Merciful to Me and
Hymn 524 – ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus (verse 4).
Gentleness is found in verse 4 of
Hymn 231 – Bless Be the King,
Hymn 540 – Gentle Jesus Meek and Mild,
Hymn 542 – Jesus Friend So Kind and we ask
Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior – Hymn 596.
