Thanks! - Poem by Harlan Simantel

thanks to Jesus
alive from the dead
thanks for his words
daily fed

thanks to John
his closest friend
his words and friendship
he still does send

thanks to Mary's
one and all
loving, kind
always on call

thanks to David
and all the prophets
women and men
who easily know God
the world may think us strange
'Gee, how they're odd! '

thanks to our Dad
high in the sky
watching us sparrows
and sheep
as we bleat
and peep!

thanks to Mom Spirit
consoling us so
soothing our brains
as on with life
we go

thanks to saints
past and present
great and small
in God's eyes we're equals
we all stand tall!
