“Wheat Field”

“Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matthew 13:30


Refreshed I am

Breathing the crisp fall air;

The leaves are vibrant,

The blue sky clear.


Though winter is nigh,

Life is at her peak;

In the glorious colors

I hear You speak:


“Daughter, rejoice now,

For I am close to you;

Child, I am here

To guide all you do.”


“See the glory

Of the colors in the fall?

Does it not remind

That I am King of all?”


“Feel the cool air,

Feel the crisp breeze?

Hear the clapping

Of leaves on the trees?”


“Is not the world

Amidst a celebration?

Do you hear the song

Of all of creation?”


“The harvest is here,

Celebrate now with Me;

One day I will harvest

For all eternity.”


“The wheat from weeds

I will separate;

Look forward to it,

To treasures that await.”


“A room in My mansion

You have in store;

How can I do less

For the child I adore?”


“So in this harvest

With Me now sing;

I am the Source

Of every good thing.”


Yea, Lord, I delight

To celebrate the harvest;

You work all for good,

Indeed all for best.


I look forward to the day

I am Home with You;

All things You beautify,

All things You renew.


Praise You, O Jesus,

I feel You in fall air;

And in colors of the harvest

Your love shines clear.
