Seize this day?

Was it this day they meant
When they said, “Seize the day”?
Was it worship they looked to?
A call to come pray?
Did they want us to call out
To God’s gracious love?
Did they think that the answers
Were best found above?
Did they want us to sing
And raise our hands high?
Was it Sabbath they thought of
When they let out this cry?

I don’t think it’s true
Nothing says that they did
But I like the idea
“Seize the BEST day there is!”
Take hold of this one
That comes every seven
Gather for worship
Find a taste of true heaven
Beat back the worries
That claw at your door
And find hope for tomorrow 
And peace evermore
Seize the day of God’s rest
A gift to be taken
For in the blessing of Sabbath
Our souls reawaken
