What blessings do we have that bring joy to our eyes?
Could it be the sun rising each ray shining bright
Or the snow falling freely, dazzling white
Is it the flowers that bloom at the onset of spring
Or the sight of a bird when expanding its wings
The vision of sunset that descends from the heights
The stars that glimmer in the darkest of nights
Can we receive blessings that are just merely heard?
Can they be perceived without saying a word?
Are they found in a storm, by the thunder that roars
Or from the sound of the waves as they crash on the shore
The church bells that peal a harmonious sound
Feet crunching leaves as they lay on the ground
Can we feel any blessings, do such things exist
Or are these the blessings that are simply missed
Is it raindrops on skin on a damp and wet day
Or the Holy Spirit that fills us as we silently pray
The kiss from a loved one so gentle and sweet
The sand grains we feel, beneath our feet
There are blessings in life surrounding us all
But these things go unnoticed, not worthy, so small
Perfect beauty untouched that we don’t often see
The blessings God made, for you and for me
