Sabbath Power


On your Sabbath
you shook off the shackles,
rose shimmering
with freedom light,
slashed wine-skins,
unfettered the bound,
sighted the blind
to day from night.

Your power
tackled mortality,
decisively winning,
put death to flight.

My Sabbath
turns me aside,
re-arranges me,
sets my compass aright.

The new Kingdom
shakes up my values,
leavens my bread,
turns my dull to bright.
