I heard those words the other day,

My mind began to run away;

Thinking of all the “things” we possess

To brighten our lives every day.

All of our creature comforts,

All of our friends that we share;

The sun, the moon, the sky, the stars,

The beauty everywhere.

God gave us eyes so we could see,

And, ears so we could hear;

A mouth so we could talk,

And, legs so we could walk.

He gave us feet, and arms, and hands,

So we could stand, and hug and feel;

A body big and strong,
