We Are What We'Re Made To Be - Poem by Sam Pete

We are what we're made to be
There's a purpose beneath
All the heavens
Being worked out here.

Solomon in all his glory
Was not arrayed
Like one of these -
'Coz they fufilled their purpose
They were created for,
Unlike wise Solomon who did not

What's the plan He's got for us
We'll not by reasoning
But asking find
For He's ever there
To answer us sure

Not just there but all around
His presence fills the earth
We stand amazed
At His glory e'er
In fine and perfect awe, wonder,
Of the lord, His Omnipresence dear

He's here,
He's there,
He's everywhere
To provide us comfort
Anywhere

He'll take us by the hand
And lead us through
All the joyous, worrisome earth
If we remember to ask
And only ask our Father
In Jesus' holy Name

Kings and princes
May not heed
Their audience pretty rare
But the Almighty on high
Is ever present, ever here

So, ask let us
And bring in now
The joys
Of life and fulfilment
By knowing He's ever near
Ready to answer
Our every prayer

And be for sure
In every care
To give Him thanks when we recieve
For His blessings manifold
They stun us by their variety
And awe us beyond all measure

Need not kneel
Need not bow
Need not lie prostrate -
But in any posture
As we find ourselves
Let us pray and draw us nigh

To Him who cares
The only One
Forever and ever.
