MY FATHER IN HEAVEN


- * MY FATHER IN HEAVEN * -

You sit right here beside me
But Your presence, I don't know,
For You're only here in spirit
And in spirit You will go.

Sometimes I hear a faint faint voice
From deep inside my heart;
Sometimes in the night it will
Awaken me - with a start.

You exist right here inside me,
Overflowing from my being.
That's why I have such faith in You,
Even without seeing.

Your presence does enfold me
Within Your loving grace,
And then I know-when life is o're
I'll surely see Your face.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
