God Is Great


Bright sun is shining

flowers are smiling

birds are chirping

When fresh is the air I know God is there.


As howling wind lashes

sharp lightning flashes

roaring thunder crashes

as raindrops gently descend

I know God is the Friend.


No cough or sneeze

pain is ease, cured is the disease,

we must pray and meditate

I know God is Great.


I See God's Love


In softly flowing clouds

soaked in moist sweetness

in mellifluous notes

seeped in the wind

and the twinkle that shines

in the smiling eyes

I feel God's love-


In the tender touch

of wanted caress, in heat

of hands in prayer pressed

in rustling of blossoms

I hear God's love-


In the friend's voice

in rhythm of raindrops

in fading winter waves

as Spring approaches

and hibernation ends.

I receive God's love.


God Sent You I Know


Because I wanted you so

And I prayed to Him;

To send you as a friend,

Someone to share

Someone to care

someone to laugh with

God sent you, I know

Because I asked Him to–

As He is the one who knows

He loves and cares

He is the One who shares,

He makes us laugh and smile

God sent you I know—

When I see you, I see Him

When you smile, I know He is happy

When you laugh, I know He is smiling too,

God loves us so

And, I know He sent you

And I love Him, and I love you,

Since God has revealed you

I know there is a purpose

I know, it is true, and there is a promise—

He has a way of showing His love,

He can see us, from above;

If we stay on His way

He will not leave us astray

We must thank Him every day.
