More about Holly Boyd:
Holly studied voice and piano for six years in her youth and loved sitting with her sister, Wendy, at the piano to sing hymns and broadway music. She graduated with a master's degree in accounting from Brigham Young University. She presently focuses on raising her three children and creating a home where the Spirit can dwell. Uplifting music is an important part of her effort, and so she regularly thinks about poetic ways to communicate messages that she hopes to remember and teach to her children. She is grateful Wendy Jensen captures her lyrics in original musical settings that she loves singing around the home and sharing with others.
Song background:

Inspired by scriptures and apostolic counsel, this text reminds me to approach the Sabbath day as a time to meaningfully change and become pure. My dearest relationships thrive upon sacrifice, so I see the sacrament as a chance to strengthen my relationship with Christ by sacrificing behaviors inconsistent with His will. I sense the power of His grace changing me as I learn to offer my heart.—HB

Lyrics: Delightful sabbath, blessed day to cleanse my worldly stains. <br/>I sacrifice and plead for Christ to grant His grace, sustain. <br/>The altar, white and laid for me, reminds me of the Lamb. <br/>I give in faith my broken heart for Him to fill and mend. <br/> <br/>I bid Christ's power in my life with bread I take today, <br/>A symbol of my willing heart to walk His covenant way. <br/>The broken body helps me see I too may overcome, <br/>The weight of mortal pain and death through the Atoning One. <br/> <br/>As I accept the blood Christ shed, salvation He sufficed, <br/>Remorse extends to gratitude I may be one with Christ. <br/>His perfect blood made right the law demanding I be clean <br/>To enter Father's presence, may His mercy claim, redeem.
