Isn’t It a Wonder

Isn’t it a wonder when the sun slowly sets
The clouds scatter out on display
The glistening light
Forms a beautiful sight
The painting takes my breath away

Isn’t it a wonder that stars roam the sky
Their brilliance is always displayed
The patterns we see
Are truly unique
They remain constant day after day

Isn’t it a wonder that flowers can bloom
From one little seed in the ground
Some water and light
Give them more than just life
When I come close their fragrance is found

Isn’t it a wonder how birds fly so free
Their wings carry them through the sky
Mere feathers and bones
Arranged in a row
They can soar without knowing why

Isn’t it a wonder that I can stand here
When I am but dust of the earth
He formed me by hand
Made me who I am
My make-up has so little worth

Isn’t it a wonder that I can see
I can speak and I even hear
This small pile of dust
Was formed out of trust
That I would praise Him who formed me

Isn’t it a wonder that God would love me
He’s always right there by my side
He still cares for me
Even when I displease
His mercy and grave override

Isn’t it a wonder that God sent His son
To die on a cross for me
When I give Him my life
He will raise me up high
In heaven one day I will be

He Gave the Trees

I can look in awesome wonder
At the miracle of nature
Knowing flowers grow from tiny little seeds,
And that season after season
When the petals bloom in splendor
The whole cycle is entrusted to the bees

I can marvel at the way the leaves
Are changed to brilliant colors
As they slowly fall upon the frosty ground
But I’ll never understand the man
Who looks at all this master plan
And insists that proof of God cannot be found

He gave the trees
To color His creation.
He gave the stars
To brighten up the sky
He gave us senses
To enjoy each wonder he has made.
Who am I to doubt He’s there,
Who am I

With our eyes we see the brilliance
Of the bright stars in the heavens
As their light glows from a distance far away
With our ears we hear the chirping
Of a bird so sweetly singing
In a melody that’s far beyond compare

With our nose we smell the fresh rain
And our mouths enjoy the sweet grain
That the earth brings forth on each and every day
But it’s hard to understand a man
Whose body holds this master plan
And insists that God’s not with us day to day

He gave the trees
Tto color His creation.
He gave the stars
To brighten up the sky
He gave us senses
To enjoy each wonder he has made
Who am I
To doubt His wondrous plan
That was formed
By the master’s hand
And given from above to man
Who am I

If you’ll open up your eyes and ears
You’ll see Him as he draws you near
And hear His gentle voice say
I Love you
