Sweet Sabbath

Thy coming brings sweetness to the air

Clouds of peace overwhelm my soul

And I am at rest

I lay aside grievous burdens

To bask in the glory of fellowship

Heaven and earth in perfect communion

And something magical happens inside me

The thought of you departing troubles my heart

Though our time together is ever memorable

Linger, please, I plead

But you must depart

Thankfully, for only a short season

So I go again, longingly

Until six sunsets pass, and we meet again
