More about Mark A. Martin:
Mark Martin minored in music while earning degrees in statistics at Brigham Young University. He played in the percussion ensemble throughout college, and also performed with BYU's Panoramic Steel. With his love of barbershop harmony, Mark formed a quartet with college friends. They could be found singing informally on and off campus, specializing in Primary songs which Mark arranged in the barbershop style. On occasion, Mark arranges sacred music without the ubiquitous barbershop 7th chords.
Song background:

Lyrics by Beatrice Jackson.  This was written for children, to instill the principle that our Sabbath Day observance, by keeping it holy, shows our love for God.  The bright tune is intended to convey that the Sabbath is a cheerful day which can be a delight.

The two parallel verses tell about God and the Sabbath (verse 1), followed by us and the Sabbath (verse 2).
