The Glory of God

*Pastor’s Note: Sister Joan Burchell is another one of my favorite Christian poets who loves the Lord very much. She is Canadian and along with some of my other Canadian Christian poets has a love for the Lord and His working in our lives. She doesn’t write much now, but her website, Along Poetry Road is still active if you would like to visit.

The Glory of God

When I see the morning sun, rise up in the east –
I think of the LOVE in You;
When it sets in the west with miraculous colour –
I think of the “I AM” in You.

When the bright stars twinkle throughout the night –
The GLORY of God shines through;
When the moon (“Lamp of the Poor”) is lit –
I think of the WONDER of You.

When nature is reborn in the spring of the year –
I think of the LIFE in You;
When summer shows its myriad of colour –
I think of the LIGHT in You.

When days grow shorter, preparing for rest –
I think of the WISDOM of You;
When a blanket of white protects from the cold –
I think of PEACE from You.

When I count my many blessings at the end of the day –
of ALL that God can do;
When I feel Your love, Your wisdom, and peace,
It’s because I am thinking of You.
