Dear God…


You are the Potter!
We are the clay;
You made us better,
Than what we say.

You gave us good shape,
And soul inlay;
We behave like ape
Often, some day!

If we had cracks,
That came some way,
Do plug all the leaks,
God, we all pray!

Let’s hold the water,
You pour in us;
What’s the matter?
What’s the fuss?

You know us too well;
You know our hearts;
You know where we fell;
You know our parts.

Help us to do well,
What You approve;
And let the world tell,
Greatest is God’s love!

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
