There was a man upon the road

Who seemed weighed down by heavy load

With spirits low, his shoulders sagged

And as he walked, his feet they dragged.

Another cause, another place

Perhaps another futile race

Tis sad believing all is lost

His faith and honor are the cost.

Oh Lord above, how can this be

The innocents now deemed guilty

Justice is lost, our nation cries

And all are left with compromise !

The rain just keeps on pouring down

There’s ne’er a dry spot left in town

The water’s rising at my feet

And flowing wild o’er every street.

The curbs are covered, sidewalks too

What else is there that we can do

Oh, such a mess that’s facing me

I feel as though I’m lost asea.

Please don’t complain about the wet

There’s too much water to forget

I wonder if old Noah knew

That job God gave to him to do ?

One page of life too soon will close

Beyond our fingers and our toes

‘Twill pass again this way no more

Without a tally or a score.

We must accept the burning fact

That there will be no turning back

Despite the depth or max of pain

We shall not pass this way again.

The time has come  to file away

Those memories of yesterday

Let’s place them in our private space

That God and time will ne’er erase !

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

I feel a chill that’s in the air

The dampness seems to curl my hair

Tis time to face another day

And push my early fears away.

How marvelous that God does share

Our heavy burden of despair

I am so grateful for this chance

To see beyond each circumstance.

I crave the comfort of His care

And feel His presence everywhere

Oh Blessed Lord, I beg of Thee

Please stay in close proximinty !

Whatever I am, dear Lord, I know

I owe it to You, You’ve made it so

You are the stars and the skies they’re in

With clouds above at Your every whim.

The rainbows we glimpse with color bright

A moon o’erhead on the starlit night

You are the dreams we are waiting for

The hopes and wishes and plans galore

That do fill our hearts and minds with glee

And create Your world this sight to see.

The birds and trees, the flowers that bloom

Assorted odors filling each room

The snow and rain, the wind as it blew

All of our treasures are gifts from You !

 

OUT OF CHAOS, ORDER.  AMEN.

I’ve often thought how very kind

We are as we keep God in mind

How understading and complete

Our lives will be with joy replete !
