The Sabbath Day - Poem by selvin mcrae

The Sabbath day
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ McRae

God has given man law to abide and live by
Numerous times we fall short even though we try
Only ten commandments from the most high
Giving thanks and praise some still ask why

Thou shall not kill, commit adultery or fornicate
These are three of the ten to keep us in shape
Honor thy parents, love each other and be not covetous
Allowing us to develop trust and to think conscious

To some these seems like moving a mountain
While for others it just flows like a fountain
For some about life they are just not certain
While others don’t mine carrying that burden

We will not have any other god before thee
Neither will we take your name in vain
Just as you ask of us we will not steal
As long as we are in our right mind and sane

One day at a time sweet Jesus
We often over look the law of the Sabbath
Obeying all nine we righteously sing and pray
Yet you told us breaking one for all we will pay

For some it is easy to live righteously in nine
Forgetting the Sabbath as if it is a crime
But woe unto thee who isn’t deaf or blind
Have ears let him hear have eyes let him read the signs
