When my hard task on earth is done God give me time to loaf in the sun; Loaf in the sun on a cool, green hill Where the breath of freedom lingers still; Lingers still to caress my face As I climb to the highest place; Highest place where content I'll stay Praising thee, Lord for each grand new day. For the carefree rest I've never known Grant me a few years to call my own; Call my own and, my sins forgiving, Strength enough to enjoy their living. There living enjoy with greater zest Because I have worked and earned my rest; Earned my rest and a place in the sun - Providing you find my work well done. Rufus L. Porter The Hard Rock Poet
