God gave us eyes to see the bright blue sky
or rain drops on petals that are close by
They can even read music and behold a surprise
so they're linked to our brain and our heart
where intelligence and beauty lies.
We can gaze at a river or a nice peaceful lake
the waves of the ocean ripple into the shore
the formations of birds across the sky
a stately tower or butterflies on flowers.
God gave us ears to hear the sound of a voice
or a gentle rippling stream
the sound of joy and laughter
or the sound of little feet.
The sound of birds singing
such joy to us they bringing
We are blessed with music
and sweet refrains
opening a precious gift
and the stillness after the rain.
God gave us a mouth to speak and sing
to take part in conversation
It even has taste buds to enjoy our favorite foods
delicious savories and fruit so sweet.
Our teeth give clarity to our words
they can bite into an apple or a handful of nuts.
So with our mouths we enjoy communications
and certain foods for our nutrition.
God gave us a nose to experience fragrance
like the smell of a rose and blossoms on trees
the pines of a forest and fresh sea air.
With our nose we can smell a nice glass of wine
and certain recipes that to us are sublime
A nice warm soup or plate of fresh fruit
each one of us are different, pleasures to suit.
God clothes us with skin to house our body
and give us appearance
Each one of us look different
with expressions and features.
Our skin can experience the warmth of sunshine
and the nice gentle breeze.
God gave us our hands with fingers
to work, play and touch
they can work at a keyboard on a PC
they can play a piano, intriguing to see.
They can fondly touch a love one's cheek
or play with a baby's bubbly feet.
We can lift our hands to the sky
exercise and praise God on high.
We can hold hands with a companion dear
carry a basket of groceries
from a shop that is near.
God made our feet to walk with
and take us different places
in the sand hills near a sea or river
we leave our different traces.
Our feet, they pitter patter when we are very young
we like to rest them sometimes when we lay in the sun.
Our feet can run and skip and dance
and feel cosy in our beds.
A baby's feet are precious with their little toes
they are so bright and playful
cute like their little nose.
Our feet, they are so faithful
to carry all our weight
through work and play and exercise
we need to treat them nice.
They enjoy a gentle massage with a little oil
or suds in a nice comfy bath
make it one that lasts.
God gave us a brain to work things out
to make decisions with
to laugh and shout.
Our brain has certain messengers
that work in different ways
we would not be without them
they are for life our friends.
We are blessed with baby brain cells
each new day when we arise
We make so many discoveries
what a nice surprise.
Our brain responds to nutrients and to stimuli
with our feelings we can reason
and each sense we are endowed with.
God gave us a heart with feelings
to love and to be loved
if you don't have a loved one consider Him above
for He will come right into your heart
and be as close as the air you breathe
His blessings you can receive
If you have family responsibilities
or maybe live alone
He can become so precious
you have only to believe.
Our hearts are made to circulate our blood
through the hours of each day
they were made to know His kindness
in certain special ways.
Yes we were made in wisdom from our mighty God on high
He made each facet of nature and did not leave us out
The sun and sea He made for us to enjoy
Times and seasons He made
for us to venture and be blessed
His mercies are new every morning
that's so we could be refreshed.
