Track Name: Sabbath Rest

There remains then a Sabbath rest
For the people, for the people of God
For in six days God made the heavens and the earth
Then He rested, the seventh day from His own work.
He who enters God’s rest, also rests from his own works.
Make every effort to enter that rest, so we won’t fall.

Therefore since we have a great High Priest
Who’s gone before us, Jesus the Son of God,
Let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
He was tempted, like us, yet without sin.
Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence
So we may receive mercy in our time of need.
Rest in Jesus, rest in Jesus.

Our great High Priest, the Son of God, the Son of God.
