Even on the Sabbath Day
Words: Nickolas Campbell, 2018
Music: I AM THINE, William H. Doane, 1875
Nickolas Campbell has crafted a narrative hymn text that is intended to correspond with the lectionary reading of Mark 2:23-3:6, which occurs on the Sunday between May 29-June 4 if after Trinity Sunday in Year B. In this narrative, Jesus clarifies how he is Lord of the sabbath. Helping others is always a way to offer love to God and neighbor, which is a spiritual discipline on the sabbath or any other day.
