Thank You Lord For Work - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

For work, we thank You Lord
Indeed it is a blessing.
To buy the things we can afford,
A source of income for our living.

Work is good, a great therapy.
It cures both idleness and pockets,
We make use of Your time wisely
And when bills come we do not fret.

Work does give one dignity,
Self-reliance and Self Respect.
We do not lean on sympathy
But do our part as all expect.

Thank You Lord, bless our hands
That our work may be completed.
Bless our minds to understand
Work is Your gift - appreciated.

----
'But remember the Lord Your God for it is He Who gives
you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant
to Your forefathers....'

Deuteronomy 8: 18
