Some People Worship


Some people worship the fiery sun
And some the crescent moon
Some people worship the stars above
But God I worship you

Some people worship dragons
And some hand carved statues
Some people worship the devil
But God I worship you

You created the heavens above
The earth with color of every hue
Then in your image you made man
God I worship you

Some people worship their president
And some their nation too
Some people worship themselves
But God I worship You!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
