FEEL THE PRESENCE OF GOD BY READING THESE INSPIRATIONAL POEMS
There is an eye that never sleeps,
Beneath the wind of night.
There is an ear that never shuts,
When sinks the beam of light.
There is an arm that never tires,
When human strength gives way.
There is a love that never falls,
When earthly love decays.
I took a day to search for God
And found him not. But as I trod
By rocky ledge, through woods, untamed
Just where one scarlet lilly flamed,
I saw his footprint in the sod.
Then suddenly, all unaware,
Far off in deep shadows, where
A solitary hermit thrush
Sang through the holy twilight hush-
I heard his voice upon the air.
And even as I marveled how
God gives us heaven here and now,
In a stir of wind that hardly shook
The poplar trees beside the brook-
His hand was light upon my brow.
At last with evening I turned,
Homeward, and thought what I had learned
And all that there was still to probe –
I caught the glory of his robe
Where the last fires of sunset burned.
Back to the world with quickening start
I look and longed for any part
In making saving beauty be-
And from that kindling ecstasy
I knew that God dwelt within my heart.
