All Things Bright and Beautiful


We fail to see to understand

What makes a child’s eye gleam?

We fail to see in Jesus’ hand

One’s hopes and wildest dream


Astounding things God has to share

Like snow, sunshine and rain

Amazing grace, our daily fair

And grace to live again


The hand of God is never still

His wonders never cease

Eternal is The Father’s will

To bring His children peace


It’s God who gives its God who takes

It’s God who turns the tide

Gives mountain springs, deep valley lakes

Gives groom and blushing bride


Each promise and deserving curse

The time of each one’s birth

The time of cribs, of looming hearse

And where to dwell the earth


The Lord has things no eye has seen

No ear has ever heard

Creating things that’s never been

Speaking His mighty word


It’s God who came as Jesus Christ

It’s God who came to save

It’s God who hung there sacrificed

That we may see no grave


Why fear, when God has all these things

With endless love to give

Affording gifts on eagle wings

That we may have to live…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
