I look outside, the sun is bright,
warm as summer predicted for today,
as if God was reminding me
that He is not far away
For if, in the dead of winter,
we can remember summer's song
and know that God has arranged all things
if we just wait, it won't be long
That sometimes is the hardest thing
to wait, to watch, to be still
and simply anticipate His moving in my life,
and knowing that He will
Meantime He pours out His gifts
every day His mercies are new,
and the greatest gift is always here with me,
the gift of love, and that is you!
When I need a hand, yours reaches out,
comfort? Your arms are right here,
an encouraging word, a loving glance,
a bit of heaven I have, 'cause you are near!
Why did God make me so rich?
Why did He make all my dreams come true?
It is, I know, because He loves me,
and joy is mine because I LOVE YOU!!
