TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE STAR


Ten billion stars a velvet sky
Lustrous diamonds above
Give praise to God who dwells on high
Displaying such constant love

How great how vast this awesome sight
Sing songs from deep inside
No darkness can invade the light
God gives at eventide

Wonders miracles near and far
Silvery moon arrayed
Shining between each twinkling star
Lovers and world displayed

Let’s praise The Lord for what He’s done
For comets flying by
The brilliant glory of the sun
Shining each day on high

Consider this giant fire ball
Its blazing splendid light
How is it there why won’t it fall?
Ceasing to show God’s might

Lets take a while lets kneel in prayer
Sing sweet and cry out loud
For all these things He gives to share
Above each marvellous cloud

Let Heaven hear our heartfelt praise
Let all the world be told
While ceaselessly His deeds amaze
And mighty works unfold

Glorious is our Fathers hand
Displayed within the sky
Regardless if we understand
Let’s praise His name on high

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
