ON no shoulders should labour become endless,
THE Lord put into place this healthy measure.
SEVENTH day saw rest from toil's exertion,
DAY after working week to spend at leisure.
HE worked for six days, making all creation,
RESTED on the seventh to enjoy,
FROM sunset on the sixth day took it easy.
ALL we then wisely rest from our employ.
HIS blessings packaged up in all creation.
WORK waits while we enjoy some recreation.
