"Give me a new idea," I said,
While thinking on a sleepless bed;
"A new idea that'll bring to earth
A balm for souls of priceless worth;
That'll give men thoughts of things ABOVE!
And teach them how to serve and LOVE!
That'll banish every selfish thought,
And rid men of the sins they've fought.
The new thought came, just how, I'll tell:
'Twas when on bended knee I fell,
And sought from HIM who knows full well
The way our sorrow to expel.
SEE GOD IN ALL THINGS, great and small,
And give HIM praise whate'er befall,
In life or death, in pain or WOE,
See God, and overcome your FOE!
I saw HIM in the morning light,
He made the day shine clear and bright;
I saw HIM in the noontide hour,
And gained from HIM refreshing shower!
At evening, when worn and sad,
He gave me help, and made me glad.
At midnight, when on tossing bed
My weary soul to sleep HE led.
I saw HIM when great losses came,
And found HE loved me just the same.
When heavy loads I had to bear,
I found HE lightened EVERY CARE!
By sickness, sorrow, sore distress,
HE calmed my mind and gave me rest.
HE's filled my heart with joyous praise
Since I gave HIM the upward gaze!
'Twas new to me, yet old to some,
This thought that to me has become
A revelation of the way
We all should live throughout the day;
For as each day unfolds its light,
We'll WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT!
Life will, indeed, a blessing bring,
If we SEE GOD IN EVERYTHING!
