“Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” (Psalm 34:8)



My little child,

Come now to hear

The sound of the ocean

Splashing so clear,


The sound of the breeze

Dancing through trees,

The sounds of gulls

Over the seas,


The sounds of children

Happy at play,

The sounds of birds

On a beautiful day…


Yes, little child,

Come now to see

My blessings of bliss,

My graces of beauty,


For these are the things

Which make life sweet:

The feeling of sand

Beneath your feet,


The peaceful lake,

The mountain high,

The verdant grass,

The brilliant sky,


The smile of a baby,

The song of a child,

The rhythm of the ocean,

Melodic and mild.


Yes, little child,

These gifts do savor,

Embrace my blessings,

Embrace my favor,


As I am the Giver

Of all good things,

Inspiring your spirit

To fly on wings,


To lift you high

When you are down,

To transform to smiles

Your every frown.


So as a child

Ever happy at play,

Embrace My gifts

On your purposeful way,


Smile joyfully

At the dance of trees,

Sing with the gulls

Of the happy seas,


Yes, clap with the waves

Splashing so clear…

And rejoice to know

I Am always near!
