Sabbath Song

With a word of His power God made light,
Waters above, below and dry land,
Plants, and fish and birds and beasts,
Then made man, then He rested. (Gen 1:1 - 2:3)

God created the world in six days, (Gen 1:5,8,13,19,23,31. Evening and morning = one day)
Six days of great outpoured energies,
Then when the seventh day arrived, (Gen 2:2-3)
He rested. God rested.
 

Chorus:

Celebrate that day!
Celebrate that day!
Celebrate the Sabbath, God's wondrous day of rest!
Celebrate that day!
Celebrate that day!
Celebrate the Sabbath, God's wondrous day of rest!


Repeat Chorus on a higher level, then repeat again on the first level

God rested from Creation work today!
Gave us a day to relax, enjoy and pray! (Exo 20:8-11; 31:15-16; 35:2. Lev 23:3)

Chorus

Day that marks when God set His people free,
Free from the bonds of oppressive slavery. (Dt. 5:12-15)

Chorus

Day of God's Sabbath, Queen of all days.
Day God created our spirits to raise. (Isaiah 58:13-14)

Chorus

Day taken from Eternity (Genesis 2:2-3. No mention of evening/morning, beginning/end ... like eternity)
Day of beauty and majesty.

Chorus

Day that foretokens a thousand years of peace! (Rev 20:2-6)
When God's great glory will cover land and seas! (Isaiah 11:9. Habakkuk 2:14)

Chorus

End of song
