Three Festivals of Celebration

One day in every seven days,
right from the world’s creation,
a pause from work for rest and praise
– a weekly celebration.*

Then Israel for one week each year
the exodus remembered –
out from enslavement, murder, fear –
the rescue by their Shepherd.**

Each Sunday let your joy resound
remembering redemption
– our Shepherd rescued, and we’ve found
such cause for celebration.***

[*Sabbath **Passover ***Resurrection Day]

Tune: 87 87 (Iambic) eg St Columba, tune of ‘The King of love my Shepherd is’
