(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear #497   CM)


The sabbath day, that day of rest,

       Was sanctified and blest

       To point us to our Savior Christ,

       In whom alone is rest.


That legal sabbath ended when

       Christ died and rose again.

       Yet, there’s a sabbath that remains,

       A rest that’s found in Him.


 “Come unto Me,”  the Savior said,

       “And I will give you rest.” 

       O weary sinners, cease from works,

       Trust Christ and find sweet rest.


Ah, sweet refreshment for my soul,

       The rest of faith is rest!

       Ceasing from works, I trust God’s Son, -

       Christ is my Sabbath Rest!
