POEMS THAT TOUCH THE HEART: GOD IS NOT FAR FROM ANY ONE OF US


2017 1015 43  Poems that touch the heart:  God is not far from any of us













God is not far from any one of us:
The wild flower by the wayside speaks His love;
Each blithesome bird bears tidings from above;
Sunshine and shower His tender mercies prove,
And men know not His voice!



God is not far from any one of us:
He speaks to us in every glad sunrise;
His glory floods us from the noonday skies;
The stars declare His love when daylight dies,
And men know not His voice!


God is not far from any one of us:
He watches o'er his children day and night;
On every darkened soul He sheds His light;
Each burdened heart He cheers, and lends His might
To all who know His voice.

Amen.

                                           Thomas Curtis Clark [1877-1953]
