Thank You for the Trees and Plants

    THANK YOU FOR THE TREES AND PLANTS

prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" / 

Father, thank you for the trees and plants

A wonderful artistry beyond man                                                    

Leaves so varied in shapes

Flowers so intricate in design.

Beauty beyond words, hues beyond the palette.

  Tree grows

Majestic, powerful and awesome

Yet You care for the tiresome.

Your creatures huge and tiny

Feathers, fur, skin, artfully coloured and patterned

Such splashes of splendour at every turn.

 

Would that I sing with a clear voice

Would that I sing new precious melodies

To praise You for all You do

To thank You for all You give

You are glorious, merciful, wonderful

 

          (Confession!  This was my  "homework" last year, when I was attending a class, and we were to write a psalm modelled on Psalm 103.  I even thought that if I could compose music, I would like to have the third verse as chorus.  Such a dreamer I am !    )

 

  Psalm 103:1-5

  1 Praise the LORD, O my soul;

       all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

2 Praise the LORD, O my soul,

       and forget not all his benefits- 

  3 who forgives all your sins

       and heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit

       and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things

       so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

詩 篇 103:1-5

  1 ( 大 衛 的 詩 。 ) 我 的 心 哪 , 你 要 稱 頌 耶 和 華 ! 凡 在 我 裡 面 的 , 也 要 稱 頌 他 的 聖 名 !  2 我 的 心 哪 , 你 要 稱 頌 耶 和 華 ! 不 可 忘 記 他 的 一 切 恩 惠 !   3 他 赦 免 你 的 一 切 罪 孽 , 醫 治 你 的 一 切 疾 病 。4 他 救 贖 你 的 命 脫 離 死 亡 , 以 仁 愛 和 慈 悲 為 你 的 冠 冕 。5 他 用 美 物 使 你 所 願 的 得 以 知 足 , 以 致 你 如 鷹 返 老 還 童 。
