Sunrise in a sunburst fashion.

Wonder of Wonders

There's wonder when a grain of sand
becomes a perfect pearl;
when, in the east, the sun will rise
to heat and light the world.

How does a mighty oak tree
from a tiny acorn grow;
and purple martins return in spring
to homes they already know?

Why have humans throughout time
looked up and been convinced?
The beauty of creation
is awesome evidence.

Perhaps somewhere deep inside our souls
a sense of God comes through,
and with the spark that lights the fire,
we come to know what's true.

Insight is granted to each of us
to accept or reject as we will.
And even if we ignore it,
His Spirit remains with us still.

He comes to us in sunshine,
and He comes again in rain.
He's there with us in happy times
and shares with us our pain.

It's when we learn to seek Him
that all wonder is revealed.
We'll say to Him, My Savior,
and find that we are healed.
