Poem based on Luke 13:10-17 Healing on the Sabbath

Child of God you are free

Stand up
To the powers that be
Holding up the law
Intended for life
And used all too often only as control
Stand up
Celebrate the Sabbath with a smile and a shout
Celebrate the Sabbath and keep it holy with joy
Celebrate the Sabbath and send the devil packing
Out of your life
Forget the cry of the controlling
Holding up the law
While running from it
The law was made for do’s
And we have turned it into a book of don’ts
From life
To death
Stand up and celebrate
Sing with joy and thanksgiving
And on the seventh day God rested

And it was good.
