Poems 4

My Heavenly Father Loves Me

“Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.”

“He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, mind, my heart;
I thank Him rev’rently
For all his creations, of which I’m a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.”

(“My Heavenly Father Loves Me,” The Children’s Songbook)



listen to the MP3 recording of "The heavans declare":

Some people never look and see

The miracles in the sky,

The magnificence of a sunrise

Or fleecy clouds drifting by.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

They miss the glory of a sunset,

The lovely rainbow hues

And what could have more splendor

Than a starry night to view.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

The heavens declare the glory of God,

And I thank you Lord for eyes to see

All the beauty and the wonder

You placed in the sky for me.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

I stand in awe of your presence

As I gaze at the marvels you display

For no human hand could ever form

Such a grand and glorious array.

~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

No artist’s brush could ever paint

All the beauty that I see.

No poet’s words could ever describe

What that beauty means to me.
