Give me the sun on the hazy horizon,
the sherbet color morning sky above
give me a clear cloudless day
then you’ll know ~ why God I love.
Give me the shade of the golden willow,
the Good Book for me to read
give me something refreshing to drink in
and I’ll have close ~ to all I need.
Give me a creek’s memorizing humming,
chirps coming from a robin’s nest
give me a green pasture with my Lord
well ~ you can picture the rest.
Give me the sounds of children playing,
the laughs and giggles of youth
give me the peace of a summer’s sigh
when God reveals to me ~ another truth.
Give me the soft breeze of the ocean,
as I watch the sun paint its dazzling set
give me a cool night in the moonlight
and I’ll be as close to heaven ~ as I can get.
Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
let me bask in God’s glorious love
give me a summer day to spend reflecting
on all the splendor ~ He sends from above!
King James Version
“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”
Deborah Ann Belka
