IN THANKFULNESS


Oh God, if I could but impart

The thankfulness that swells my heart

For each and every little thing . . .

 

Like color bursts announcing spring,

The shaded spots the trees have brought,

The sunshine brightening every thought . . .

The squirrels playing on my lawn,

The eventide . . . the still, new dawn . . .

The fragrant smell of brown leaves burned,

The fresh black dirt where earth is turned –

So many small things such as these

Have done so much my life to please

My whole life long would be of praise

To God, the Keeper of my days

JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING


POEM

JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING

Nights can be long and so lonely

Filled with such anguish and pain,

Jut joy cometh in the morning

Like sunshine after the rain.

Sometimes your heart can be aching

Filled with such grief and sorrow,

But joy cometh in the morning

Bringing hope for the morrow.

For God hath not always promised

Sunshine and blue skies above,

But joy cometh in the morning

Bringing God’s peace and His love.

They say it always seems darkest

in the hours before the dawn,

But joy cometh in the morning

Giving us faith to go on.

Thus we should trust Jesus always

Give Him each sorrow and pain,

For joy cometh in the morning

Like sunshine after the rain.

Mary E. Harrington
