It’s easy to ignore:
Light and darkness, dawn and dusk, Lord,
Seasons, tides, and more.
2. You give us daily miracles
It’s easy to forget:
Rain and sunshine, seeds and crops –
We’re always in your debt.
3. You give us daily miracles
It’s easy to dismiss:
The helpfulness of strangers, Lord;
Each smile, each hug, each kiss.
4. You give us birth, and life, and death;
This world, which you sustain;
You give so much, Lord, every day –
Until you come again.

A little seed –
But we must do our best
To help it grow, through prayer, thanks, and rejoicing,
So it becomes a tree
Where others rest
You give us all the gift of hope:
A touch of yeast –
But we must make it spread,
And help it grow, through prayer, thanks, and rejoicing,
So many more can eat
Your living bread.
You give us all the gift of love:
A tiny spark –
But we must fan its flame,
And help it grow, through prayer, thanks, and rejoicing,
So others burn
To praise your holy name.
Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame
(Song of Songs 8:6; NLT).
