Like rivers rise up from their beds
And lakes leap to their banks,
So my soul overflows with praise
And offers God my thanks.
Like sunshine streams across the land
To spill each golden ray,
Grows my heart rich with gratitude
For mercies new each day.
Like birds begin each morn with song
In joyful harmony,
So sing I then along with them
A grateful melody.
Like bees surround a honey pot
Where sweetness can be found,
So my soul delves into God's Word
Where promises abound.
Like all of nature does applaud
Our great Creator's care,
Join I with them in gratefulness
And bow my knees in prayer.
When I reflect upon His love
God gives abundantly,
I'm overwhelmed by what I owe
To Him who died for me.
Verna Cole Mitchell is a wife, mother, grandmother, and retired teacher, who is so grateful to God for all his blessings. Her desire is to honor God with her life and with her words.
