Give me the sun on the horizon,
a sherbet color morning sky above
give me a clear, cloudless, warm day
then you’ll know why with God I’m in love.
Give me the shade of a willow tree,
the Good Book for me to read
give me a sweet tea to sip on
and I will have close to all I need.
Give me a creek’s mesmerizing flow,
chirps coming from a robin’s nest
give me green pastures with my Lord
well now you can picture the rest.
Give me the sound of children playing,
the laughs and giggles of youth
give me the peace of a summer’s sigh
found around a lemonade booth.
Give me the soft breeze off the ocean,
the sun painting its dazzling set
give me the coolness of the moonlight
and I’ll be 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 warm summer day to reflect . . .
on the splendor God’s sends from above!
“To every thing
there is a season,
and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:”
