Mysterious Ways - Poem by Gary James Smith

Mysterious Ways


God moves in mysterious ways
To give His children rest
Oftimes it is no accident
By accident we're blessed


Big question marks on this side
Especially if one died
But all revealed eventually
When we reach the other side


Much needed rest required
The Great Physician knows
From the numbered hair on each head
Down to our very toes


He's got it all together
To the umpteenth degree
After all He's the Creator
He's made eternity


So cheer up fellow believers
God knows just where your at
Though trials and testing befall us
It does not diminish the fact


That God is in His heaven
He's watching over us all
Not only we human beings
But the tiniest sparrows fall


Take joy and give Him praises
My God how great Thou art
No mystery to You
My life Your work of art


So rest in comfort brother
Receive His special grace
I'd rather be in the will of God
Than any other place


Thank You Lord for resting
You have said it's good
We often fail to remember this
As Thou has said we should


In hospital bed, home laden?
I'll praise Thee all my days
I'll leave the outcome up to Him
Who moves in mysterious ways.
