Could we but know the history

Of all God’s miracles we see,

That every minute of each day

Are playing out in grand display,

Oh, what a wonder we would learn

For every fraction of life’s turn.

As occurs here before our eyes

This program happens in disguise

The simplest flight of birds on high

Got their direction times gone by

God’s world is perfect as can be

Except for fools like you and me !

Tis Sunday morn a day of rest

Enjoy the day and dream your best

Pick up the pieces if you care

And be assured that He is there !

There is an oak outside my door

That stretches up ten stories more

There is no way that I can see

The sidewalk to the left of me.

This ancient tree is truly old

Devoid of nicks and is not bald

Her branches spread this way and that

She wears them like a giant hat .

And when it rains the ground is dry

Because her leaves are piled so high

Oft do I think, about those trees

That gently sway into the breeze

I’d like to know what I can do

To be that free and live long too !

 

 

 

 

AND WONDERS SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/05

I hear sweet music in the air

That’s offered up to God in prayer

It sounds so full of faith and awe

That is what hymnals are meant for.

We praise our Lord, call on His name

Help us remember why He came

Show us how to aid in His work

And help our neighbors, never shirk.

Let’s make this earth a better place

In which to raise the human race

Depend on Him, He’s always there

To ease our pain and wonders share !

 

SPECIAL CROSS ( 2018 ) 2018/12/30

Lord, how much longer must we wait

To meet our Maker, seal our faith

What vision is it we need see,

Embrace our hearts and set us free ?

What battle more than we shall dare

Or journey far that all may share,

Where in the end of win or loss

Each faces his own special cross !

 

 

 

 

YOUR PRAISE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/13

Thank you, dear Lord for the strength and the will

To keep hope alive when the option’s nil

When the journey’s o’er and our lives are done

We’ll sing Your praise with each Angelus rung !

 

 

 

LIFE IS SHORT RANGE ( 2018 ) 2018/12/01

The end draws near and seems so strange

That life of man lasts but short range

While trees exist for centuries

Attested by the rings one sees.

In man there is this pressing need

For lives to fail or to succeed

As each is counted one by one

But who shall know when counting’s done ?
