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 an 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 the seventh day is still valid.

Stephen Zork
"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 remembering 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." 

Remember The Sabbath Lyrics

Below are the lyrics for this beautiful song:-

Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy,
honor 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,
honor 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.

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.' 
The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord.
The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus.
This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song.

Be Still For The Presence of The Lord Lyrics and Story Author: David J Evans

Story Behind "Be Still For The Presence of the Lord" For me and many Christians I believe, Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord, ranks high among worship hymns of all time. It is a beautiful song with a clear and simple message.
It is a call for us to tune out everything and focus on the Lord. The Holy One is here and nothing else matters.
It is one of the most beloved modern hymns that are full of the teachings of the scripture. It reminds me of the tradition long gone where hymns were used as vehicles for spreading the teachings of the church.
The author of this hymn is David J Evans who wrote this song in the 1980s.
The inspiration for this hymn is the story of Jacob fleeing from his brother. While in the wilderness he had a dream where he saw angels going up and down a ladder to heaven. The old Testament says, " ‘then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”

I have also read somewhere where it is said that this …

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens. She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children. 
Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth.
"Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds."
The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Below are the lyrics of this Christian hymn classic:-
