Take Time To Stand Amazed

Take time to stand amazed
And wonder at the Touch
That fills the spreadsheet of our days
With miracles and such

The Hand that cups the sky
Above dusk’s dimming earth
And draws blue shadows on the sigh
Of summer’s waning girth
Does not seal heaven’s bar
Nor hold man’s hope at bay
But pours upon the way we are
The light of a new day

Forbid that dumbly we
Should dash, wide-eyed and blind
Across the graves of What We See
Without one thought in mind
Of He who tends our need
Where seasons bleed and fall
As blooming plume burgeons with seed
Of morrow’s miracle

Take time to bow awestruck
Before the God of grace
Who grants us more than Chance or Luck
With which to run life’s race

The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.

 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Ps.107:1

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, 
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Give thanks to the God of gods, 
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.…Ps.136:1-2

 Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; 
make known among the nations what he has done.
1 Chron.16:8
