Waiting in Sabbath

A change to our path
remembering we are not of this place
merely refugees, travelers
trying to find our way home

Waiting in Sabbath
reverently, expectantly
for the king, the babe
the savior on the cross
coming into the world again
in our consciousness

Yet God is here
living within our hearts
indwelling spirit
sharing our walk
all the days of our lives
waiting in sabbath

Share sabbath, rest
with our land,
with our neighbors,
with the world
