Poetry

“Great is thy faithfulness,”
__Say the leaves to the light.
“Oh God, my father,”
__Says darkness to night.

“There is no shadow,”
__Says the eye to the sun.
“Of turning with thee,”
__As tears start to burn.

“All I have needed,”
__Says the sand to the storm.
“Thy hand has provided,”
__Say the combs to the swarm.

“Great is thy faithfulness,”
__Says the cup to its brim.
“Lord unto me,”
__Say I unto him.
