This Single Tree
by louis gander
11/17/2011 / Missions
I want to change the whole wide world
and show God's loving touch.
I know the great commission.
I want to do so much.
A brilliant yellow daffodil -
with color bright and full...
but how, if I have never seen -
can know how beautiful?
A peach - so juicy, succulent -
with taste that I can savor...
but how, if I have never ate -
can know its unique flavor?
A sonata in D-minor -
with music so profound...
but how, if I have never heard -
can truly know its sound?
A Man - so perfect, wonderful -
who loves me without end...
but how, if I, so weakly love -
can know Him as a friend?
If head, I pull, from clouds above,
I may just understand.
This world is like a forest and -
a tree, just like a man.
Proclaim, I how, God's love to all -
and in the forest be -
when I know not the blessings 'cause
I stand in way of me?
Oh, how I want to change the world,
and show God's loving touch -
but change, I how, the forest when -
this single tree's too much?
