Blessed are you who choose to see,
The path Iíve paved to set you free.
For when you walk in faith alone,
Youíll find a peace youíve never known.

An open heart from yours to mine,
Will bless your world with things divine.
The gifts I give will fill your soul,
With sights set high on Heavenís goal.

Iíll share with you each splendid thing,
Like all the joys My touch will bring.
Desires revealed with Godly sight,
Will all be yours when I deem right.

Iíll bless you with abundant life,
And walk with you in times of strife.
Nothing less, but so much more,
Are given to those whom I adore.

Iíll guide you through each cold, dark night,
And pave your path with spiritual sight.
My guidance leads the only way,
To bring you toward the light of day.

My love for you will never cease,
The hand you trust will offer peace.
Donít search the world for worthless jewels,
Youíll reap more with the Masterís tools.

See this world through different eyes,
And close your ears to earthly lies.
Donít seek within for empty pleasures,
For I will store your heavenly treasures.

Blessed are you who choose to see,
The path Iíve paved to set you free.
For when we travel hand in hand
Iíll lead you to the Promised Land.

Beautiful poem! I loved the rhythm and flow of this. What a beautiful song of praise this is!
Deborah Anderson12/07/04
Great rhythm and flow, Joanne. God bless you.
Debbie OConnor12/08/04
This is very nice. I particularly like the line, Blessed are those who choose to see the path I've paved to set you free. Often the path He's paved is not the one we'd choose, but if we trust Him and follow we are blessed.

Wonderful, Joanne! You've worked very hard on this and it shows in the elegance and ease of the wording. The title says it all -- what a blessing!
Lucian Thompson12/09/04
Joanne, very seldom, in my opinion, are poems written that flow as well as yours does. It was a joy to read and the message is a real blessing.
Karri Compton12/10/04
I love consistent rhyme and meter and this has both, along with a great message. Thank you.
Blessings, Karri

It makes me wish I could write music so I could sing its song! Thank you!.

Beautiful poetry Joanne.
Kevin Kindrick12/12/04
Wow, just... wow, that's really all I can say. This is a message straight from the heart of the Savior, would that we could all take His hand and allow Him to guide us down the rocky road of life.

God bless,

Kevin
