God's Paintbrush

Wednesday, November 04, 2009


Oh Lord you paint the sky,

Colors so beautiful to the naked eye.

You paint the colors of the trees,

Blowing ever so gently in the breeze.



You paint the smile on a child's face,

Nothing on earth could such replace.

You paint the Dawn at break of day,

Oh the majestic colors on display!



You paint a Rose on thorny stem,

The fragrance alone brings a hallowed Amen!

You paint the fields with wild flowers,

That sparkle so bright after evening showers.



You paint a Rainbow in pastel shades,

Pathways along the Everglades ,

Waterfalls full of mist and steam,

As Fields of flowers in sunshine beam.



You paint the sky on a stary night,

To my wondrous eyes is pure delight!

You paint a Sunset in every shade,

Your Glory on earth again displayed!



Your paintbrush, Oh God captures every eye,

The Beauty of Earth, land, sea and sky!

There is nothing, Oh Lord you would not do,

For your Creatures on earth who Worship You!



But to see Your Face and behold Your Glory,

No artist on earth could paint such a story!

The Beauty of Christ I long to see,

Nothing on earth compares to Thee!
