Sabbath of Rest

Oh that I had wings of a dove
To fly to the snow capped mountains
The fresh scented forest
The green rolling hills
Or the sea washed sands
To enter into Your presence
The Sabbath of rest
Ceased from our own works
Just to sit at your feet and learn of You
Away from the throb of the world
The clatter and the conflict
The ringing and pounding
The deadlines and strife
Just to ask You questions
And receive time enduring answers
To converse with You
To share joys and hopes
To feel Your hand in mine
As we walk the rugged trails
Lord You and I
One together
Perfect love
Lord I would that Your Holy Spirit
Control my thoughts
Direct my actions
And give me wings
The wings of a dove
To enter into Your Sabbath of rest
