One Thing Remains

In all the world I cannot find
A match for what God leaves behind
Each day He comes and illustrates
His love for us in different ways

Today in might be flowers bloomed
Whose end with frost is marked with doom
And then there are majestic clouds
That come and go as lightning shouts

The grass is green for many days
Then it turns brown like chopped up hay
The leaves turn colors beautiful
Before they fall and lose their hue

All these things God leaves behind
But one thing still remains through time
The brilliance of a new sunrise
The palette of a sunset shines

We just go on our merry way
And take for granted all He gave
From natures wonder on display
To Calvary’s cross and a borrowed grave

He gave His all to show His love
He came to die from heaven above
Today I hope you realize
The love He has for you

Homesick

I remember days from long ago when life was but a high
We traveled in my little car across the countryside
There was no destination as we went on this long ride
We just enjoyed the scenery especially in fall

New England is a gorgeous place when autumn comes about
The leaves turn brilliant colors that always gave my heart a shout
Whenever autumn comes each year I look with suspect doubt
That the colors here in Iowa are redolent at all

God’s canvas is a mighty thing each day I look around
From sunrises to sunsets He fails not to astound
But in the autumn colors I’m set on higher ground
Their brilliance in New England makes me homesick every fall
