The Gift Within

My grandpa was a laborer
On a dairy farm
He gathered eggs
And milked the cows
He started before dawn

The milk was pasteurized
Before it left the barn
But we held some
To drink for lunch
And some we had to churn

Churning is the process
Of solidifying milk
It agitates
And then creates
Butter in its place

The Word of God within us
Must be stirred up inside
When churned about
It brings results
That help us to survive

Stir up the gift within you
Make sure it’s shining bright
Then witness here
And then afar
So all can see the light
