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.

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul Hymn

Story Behind Heaven Came Down  Heaven Came Down is a hymn that is of recent origin as it was written in 1961 by John W Peterson. It draws its inspiration from a testimony delivered by an old man named Jim at Montrose Bible Conference Grounds, Pennsylvania. During the testimony talked of his conversion experience. In the testimony he used the phrase, "It seemed like Heaven came down and glory filled my soul." It is this phrase that inspired John W Pearson to write a song using this phrase later that week.  John W Peterson wrote over a thousand hymns but it is this song that has touched and continues to touch millions of Christians all over the world. He died on September 20, 2006, at the age of 84 after suffering from prostate cancer. It is so sweet to entrust and surrender our lives to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven does literally come down into our hearts when we do that. John W Peterson Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul

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.'  Daniel B Towner- 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. A brief Intro of

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less) Lyrics and Story

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Else / On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand History My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less or On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand is the best-known hymn of Edward Mote who wrote it in 1834. The original title of this hymn was, "The Immutable Basis for a Sinner's Hope". Edward Mote was the pastor of Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham West Sussex in the United Kingdom. It looks as if the inspiration for this hymn came from Christ parable of the wise and foolish builders. In the parable, Christ speaks of the foolish builder who built his house on sinking sand while the wise builder built his on solid rock. As you would imagine a storm easily swept away the one built on sand. Edward Mote - On Christ the Solid Rock Christ is the solid rock upon which we can build our house of faith. Any other foundation is like one on sand and will ultimately fail. On the authorship of this song Mr. Mote's explanation, communicated to the Gospel Herald, is
