A Blessed Land - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

A blessed land
Yields Abundance from its soil,
Its mountains hand
Its people, Harvest for their toil.
A faithful womb
That births forth much Provision,
She's one from whom
We sow our bountiful nutrition.
Our blessed land
We pray God keep Her so!
And that we stand
United, together make Her grow.
God bless Her with Peace
His Truth upon Her, shine-
May the Grace that is His
Bless this lovely land of mine!

'May the favor of the LORD rest upon us,
establish the work of our hands for us...
Psalm 90: 17

Topic(s) of this poem: country, nature

    She's one from whom
    We sow our bountiful nutrition...............i would use reap, not sow.****

    i am NOT religious (i used to be) , but i do recall a bible verse from my youth, one version of which is this:

    King James Bible
    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap

    i'm thinking of reaping some ice cream now, but i did not sow any, so i am out of luck! : (
