Song background:

I started this song at the beginning of 2019 and expanded it as I took conference notes in April in the meter of the song.  Many of the concepts from the April 2019 general conference were incorporated into the song.  I tried very hard to have all of the parts be very fun to sing for everyone.

Lyrics: Sweet, Joyous Sabbath Day <br/> <br/> 1 – Sweet, joyous Sabbath day, fin’lly has come. <br/>Friends, neighbors, fam’lies are gath’ring as one <br/>Leaving the cares of this world far behind, <br/>Righteousness seeking to godliness find. <br/> <br/>We gather here on this bright sabbath day, <br/>Pond’ring how better to follow Thy way. <br/> <br/>2 – What sign do we wish to give Thee, our God? <br/>Our strict devotion was bought with Thy blood. <br/>Sabbath observance fills us with delight: <br/>Do better, be better, love choosing right. <br/> <br/>We gather here on this bright sabbath day, <br/>Pond’ring how better to follow Thy way. <br/> <br/>3 – What do we give in exchange for our soul? <br/>We’ll forsake all our sins, please make us whole. <br/>Grant us forgiveness as we forgive men, <br/>Show us Thy mercy as we love again. <br/> <br/>We gather here on this bright sabbath day, <br/>Pond’ring how better to follow Thy way. <br/> <br/>4 – For all our sins, Jesus suffered and died, <br/>Satan defeated, our vict’ry supplied. <br/>Our shepherd calls us, each one, by our name. <br/>Come now to worship, His mercies proclaim. <br/> <br/>We gather here on this bright sabbath day, <br/>Pond’ring how better to follow Thy way. <br/>
