th-10Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment. Luke 23:56 NIV

We cooked for his band, He ate and then smiled

We followed him across the land, He slept on the ground

We listened to his teaching, it was nourishment to our souls

Now, All we can do is rest


He performed many miracles, ours are part of His story

He taught we great authority, we willingly submitted.

He claimed to be God in the flesh, we saw no reason to doubt

Now, ALL we can do is rest


We cried out our prayers in hope, He prayed with intimacy

We listened to his gentle voice, our spirits came alive

We washed his feet, He praised us openly

Now, ALL we can do is rest


We watched him as He died, He cared for His mother

We stayed and wept at the cross, He was separated from His father

We saw the spear and the blood, His died, it’s over

Now, ALL we can do is rest


Why did He have to die on Preparation Day

We have so much to do for Him

The law – God’s way – requires NO work on the Sabbath

Now, ALL we can do is rest


We sit in our grief, wishing He was here

Our hearts are overwhelmed, His comfort absent

We women supported His work, He still needs our spices

Today we rest, Tomorrow…
