Treasure

Treasure

Treasure beauty from the Maker.

Treasure color, sky and nature.

Treasure walks through endless park

among the winging meadowlark.

 

Treasure songbirds high on limbs.

Treasure words in humble hymns.

Treasure humming tunes though old

that weave through treetops, warm the cold.

 

Treasure long and endless streams.

Treasure optimistic dreams.

Treasure truth when grapes are crushed

and when all future hopes are hushed.

 

Treasure boys with antique toys.

Treasure them who have no poise.

Treasure girls with bouncing curls

while wearing mother's phony pearls.

 

Treasure those who aren't perfect.

Treasure them with due respect.

Treasure friends, so close to you

and loyal friendship through and through.

 

Treasure faithful servitude.

Treasure quiet solitude.

Treasure Bible's remedies

and treasure fondest memories.

 

Treasure all that life has penned.

Treasure pause at trail's end.

Treasure journey, near complete

and rest awhile on wooden seat.

 

Treasure prayer through sun and shower.

Treasure God in all His power.

Treasure resurrection's way

and Christ's ascension.  What a day!

 

Treasure blessings from before

Treasure our salvation more.

Treasure Christmas, it's true meaning -

and forgiveness with its healing.

 

 

Treasure autumn, winter, spring.

Treasure faith in everything.

Treasure God's tremendous grace -

for each and ev'ry human race.

 

Treasure not your earthly treasures.

Question not the way God measures.

Just treasure all creation's of.

It's wrapped in love from God above.

 

Treasure beauty from the Maker.

Treasure color, sky and nature.

Treasure walks through endless park

among the winging meadowlark.
