His name is on the birds wing.
His story in their song.
They are not free for nothing
they know God’s will be done.
His words are not in Hebrew
within some hidden text.
They’re in those things around us,
those things we love the best.
But in our world of hurry
of movement, fuss and flight.
How often do we take the time
to use our wonderous sight?
There’s crystals in the snowflake
there’s clover in the lawn.
There’s God in every child’s cry
in every sunset, every dawn.
He wraps the world around us
like a mother wraps a cloak.
Is it really our intention
to fill this world with smoke?
We have fueled our own destruction
with our hunger and our greed.
How often have we wondered
what most people really need.
They do not need possessions
or equipment to be whole.
They need a true contentment,
in alignment with their soul.
If we can’t respect our planet,
our neighbours, or our friends.
We face our own destruction
and the Earth will say amen.
Now’s the time to face the future,
to bite the bullet, make amends.
To live in harmony with nature,
and see challenges as friends.
For your friends are those that love you
those that help you face the truth.
They do not stand stand above you
shouting slogans from the roof.
They are with you in the courtyard,
in the basement and the farm.
They are in the muck and bullets,
always watching out for harm.
But they do not take your bullet
or prevent the arrows path.
They travel with you in the thicket,
shine a light upon your path.
You think God is in His heaven
He’s just as present here on Earth.
In every cell and every thought form.
He does not abandon you at birth.
As you face the world around you,
every struggle. every strife,
You can't but help to take Him with you
Through your full and worthwhile life.
