God's Darling


I don't want to be a saint
I don't want to be an angel
I want to be God's darling

So I could sincerely be happy to see something beautiful happened
Instead of being jealous for what I don't have
So I could share my happiness too
And have a generous heart to bless someone else

Even though I'm nobody
Even though I'm cursed sick
I want to be God's darling

And I will not be alone and feel lonely
Because He will always be there and never leave me
And I should not be afraid of pain or death
Because He will come to comfort and hold me

I don't desire a perfect life
I don't desire power, I don't desire wealth
I just want to be God's darling

He will love and care to me
He won't doubt or give a trial to me
And it is more than enough for me
To not lose hope and be broken

Maybe I'm being ungrateful
Maybe I'm being blind
But I still want to be God's darling

He will call me again softly
Offering hand to escape from darkness
He will be the place when I'm lost
Where I could go home and rest in peace

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
