Thine Earthly Sabbaths Lord We Love – Hymn Lyric
Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love,
But there’s a nobler rest above;
To that our longing souls aspire,
With ardent pangs of strong desire.
No more fatigue, no more distress,
Nor sin nor hell shall reach the place;
No groans to mingle with the songs
Which warble from immortal tongues.
No rude alarms of raging foes;
No cares to break our long repose;
No midnight shade, no clouded sun,
Obscures the lustre of thy throne.
Around thy throne, grant we may meet,
And give us but the lowest seat;
We’ll shout thy praise, and join the songs
Of the triumphant, holy throng.

Thine Earthly Sabbaths Lord We Love: Longing for Rest in a Higher Realm
In our earthly lives, dear Lord, we find solace and joy in the sacred rest of the Sabbath. It is a day where we gather in your presence, seeking renewal and peace. We cherish these moments, but deep within our souls, we yearn for a rest that surpasses all earthly understanding.
Oh, how our hearts aspire to that heavenly abode, where our longing for true rest is met with ardent pangs of strong desire. Our earthly toils and struggles fade away in the promise of a nobler rest above. In that realm, no fatigue, distress, sin, or the torments of hell shall ever reach us. Imagine, not a single groan to mingle with the songs that flow from immortal tongues!
In this celestial dwelling, there are no rude alarms of raging foes no cares that can shatter our long repose. The midnight shade and the clouded sun that obscure our earthly existence will be replaced by the eternal glow of your glorious throne. Yes, dear Lord, in your presence there will be no obscurity, for your throne shall shine with radiant brilliance.
In this heavenly domain, grant us the humblest of seats around your throne. Though we are but feeble creatures, we yearn to be in your presence, oh Lord. We desire to join the songs of the triumphant and holy throng, adding our voices to the endless chorus of praise. We will shout your name with exultation and gratitude, as we bask in the blissful company of those who have gone before us.
Picture, if you will, a paradise where weariness is unknown, and pain is but a distant memory. It is a place where our souls find perfect peace, and our hearts are filled with boundless joy. Every burden is lifted, and every tear is wiped away, for we are encompassed by your unfailing love and grace.
As we envision this celestial realm, let us remember the teachings of your word. In the book of Matthew, you welcomed the weary and burdened, promising to give them rest. It is a promise that transcends the earthly Sabbath, extending into eternity. Your words provide comfort and hope, assuring us of a rest that goes far beyond our comprehension.
Dear Lord, in our earthly sojourn, we seek solace in the sanctuary of your earthly Sabbaths. Yet, we understand that these glimpses of rest are mere shadows of what awaits us in the eternal realm. So, as we continue on this pilgrimage, may our longing for that higher rest fuel our commitment to live in accordance with your teachings.
Let us strive to find moments of respite amidst life’s challenges, not only on the designated day of rest but throughout our journey. Let us embrace the Sabbath spirit in our daily lives, setting aside time to commune with you, to reflect, and to find solace in your everlasting presence.
And as we yearn for that ultimate rest, may we share your love and joy with those around us. Let us be beacons of hope and sources of comfort for those who are weary and burdened. May our lives bear witness to the peace and rest that comes from knowing and trusting in you.
In summary, dear Lord, while we treasure the earthly Sabbaths, it is the yearning for the nobler rest above that truly captivates our hearts. We eagerly anticipate the day when all weariness, distress, and sin will be no more. Until then, let us find solace in your presence, knowing that you are our true rest. And as we journey through this life, may our longing for that heavenly rest inspire us to live in accordance with your teachings and share your love with others.
