Remember The Sabbath (Christian Music) - Reggie & Ladye Love Smith and Andrews University Choir

In this video, well known Christian musicians, Reggie & Ladye Love Smith and Andrews University Choir sing a song that has become very popular in the Seventh day Adventist Church. "Remember the Sabbath" is a song that reminds us to keep the Sabbath holy.  The Seventh day Adventist Church is a evangelical church that came into being in the early 19th century in America. One of its fundamental doctrines is the Sabbath. Unlike most Christians, Adventists go to church on Saturday, the seventh day of the week as they believe that the commandment to observe seventh day is still valid.

"Remember The Sabbath To Keep It Holy" was composed by Dr. Zork of Andrews University in the US. I will let Dr Zork explain how he came to compose this song. 

Dr Zork: "The first song is simply the most distinct or at least in the public imagination the most distinct Adventist doctrine that is the Sabbath is Saturday. The day of rest commanded to be observed through Moses the commandments and Adventists believe that is an eternal message. God rested after six days of creation, we should rest too, okay, and this is remember the Sabbath and I love the song because we live in modern times with a lot of stress. At any given moment we could think I need to do this, I need to do that. God says slow down, Amen, I want you to honor me and remember the Sabbath. And who wrote this song? I wrote Remember the Sabbath and my wife contributed to it lyrically." 


Below are the lyrics for this beautiful song:-

Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy,
honour the day
That our Lord commands us to cease our toiling,
and we obey,
That we may know Him,
and learn His patient ways.
Keeping the Sabbath holy, 
in all our days.

So enter His temple with high thanksgiving,
worship the Lord,
and fill up this house, 
with your voices ringing, 
let them be heard,
for we adore Him,
and lift our hearts in praise
keeping the Sabbath holy,
in all our days.

Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy,
honour the day
That our Lord commands us to cease our toiling,
and we obey,
That we may know Him,
and learn His patient ways.
Keeping the Sabbath holy, 
in all our days.
Remember The Sabbath To Keep It Holy Song
