Paradise on Earth by Raymond A. Foss

Maybe in the commandment
something even more wonderful
the refreshing of rest
time spent from cares, from our work
lingering on the sabbath
looking to the creator
to God for provision
seeing the gifts,
wondrous grace all around
paradise not in some distant
some unknown future
here on earth
if we live as he did
able to rest on the stormy seas
aware of the presence
the protection of our Father
watching over us in every moment
giving us rest from our labors
in his loving commandment
