Treasure Island

Cynthia BuhainBaello

(November 17,1949 / Manila, Philippines)

A Heart That Worships


A heart that worships is so emptied
Of fears, of doubts and worrying
It speaks in joy for what God did
In praise and thanks it always sings.

A heart that worships only beats
For God Who handles it with care
In daily prayer it will meet
His Love and Faithfulness there.

A heart that worships is at rest
For God's assurance is His promise
His will for us is always best
Our earthly weariness will cease.

When we feel lost and oh so empty
Our hearts of worship will return
To our God Who is all worthy
With praise and love He'll make us yearn.

    A marvelous piece; loved the message and your descriptions of what it means to worship God; we truly benefit when we go before Him with a loving and humble heart; wonderfully written!

    Cynthia-
    I really like this one and the the other two you mentioned to me (A Father's Legacy and Crossing The Sea) .
    You have a great talent for expressing your thoughts.
    I saw the list of poets that influenced you and they are similiar to poets I have gotten inspiration from also. Have you ever read any of Robert W. Service's poetry?
    Best wishes to you- Dave. (Report) Reply

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
