Our Jubilee has ended

Our Jubilee has ended
The work begins anew
Our differences were mended
But now new debts accrue

We broke to forge in unity
A people of one heart
We tended our community
But now rejoined, we break apart

The work now lies before us
Fields to plow and herds to tend
After rest in holiness
We labor ’til a distant end


Lev. 25:8-12 “You shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his clan. That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of itself nor gather the grapes from the undressed vines. For it is a jubilee. It shall be holy to you.”
