Picture frames sure vary so,
whether big or small.
They all have work they need to do,
whether wide or tall.
Picture frames are so unique,
maple, oak or pine -
but focus not on picture frames -
they're merely for design.
Frames can border a photo.
Frames can border a place.
Frames can border a work of art
or frames can border a face.
When I was just a little boy,
(and though I was quite small),
a picture I remember well
was hanging down the hall.
I know my father put it there.
It hung for many years.
It was there throughout my teens -
showed sorrow, pain and tears.
That picture was of Jesus
bowed lowly on His knees -
at a huge and solid rock,
near branches from some trees.
His hands were neatly folded.
Love flowed from both His eyes.
His head was tilted way, way back -
His face gazed on the skies.
Dark clouds covered most the sky.
Rays of moonlight lit His face,
and seemed to put a glow around
this humble Man of grace.
For years, that picture on our wall
drew thoughts within my mind...
God sent down here, His only Son,
to sinful men, unkind.
I remember well, the picture.
I don't recall that frame.
but oh, what matters most is this -
that I really know His name.
