On this the day of rest
Our love for You is put to the test
Will we rise ready to praise your name?
Or will sleeping in and ignoring You be our game?
Yes, it is true that every single day we should adore You
Not just on the Sabbath should we sing your praises, this is so true
But, it is on this day when we’re called to gather in Your house
To be loud & bold in our love for You, not to be as quiet as a mouse
Oh Lord, I thank thee each and every day for all You have given me
For richly blessing me with wonderful friends and a loving family
And most of all, for loving me though you know me oh so well
So much so that you made a way for me to escape the pains of hell
Thank You for the gifts that You’ve given me, like a mind that’s creative
May I use each one to show Your greatness in the life You’ve given me to live
No matter where I am, may my love for You shine ever so bright
I want all who see me to see You in my eyes, to see within me Your great light
