Poem – In His Beauty

Sunday Reflections

~ In His Beauty ~

What am I to the Lord –

He that has provided for

every wildflower of the earth?

I am like that wildflower

that springs from the rocky cliff.

 

He sends nourishment for it

to open and lift its face towards him.

It grows and flourishes till it has spread

over the face of the barren cliff.

 

He sends the rains so it can live.

If he did that for a wildflower–,

What did he do for me?

 

He gives me his word, so I can believe.

He lets me feel his spirit

and I know that he loves me.

 

He will guide me and let me find truth—

for in that truth—He died for me.

 

As he loves the smallest wildflower

that seems to grow from neglect—

The Lord also loves me.
