There’s beauty in the humble things

Because although they are not grand,

There’s a hidden treasure in their core;

Too majestic to understand.

Look at the humble little bee;

It sustains our food supply,

Via pollination

And without them we’d probably die.

Look at the oyster

Buried deep within the sea,

But gives birth to the precious pearl

That is the most beautiful indeed.

Look at the humble egg;

Not very fancy at all,

Yet most of the nutrients it does contain

Although it’s very small.

Look at the humble ant;

Ten times its weight can carry,

And very useful in decomposition

So no corpse or flesh will tarry.

Look at a newborn babe

So dependent and humble indeed,

But will plant a smile on our heart

And create precious memories.

T’was the humble little manger

Where our Savior He was placed,

But where the Father had grand plans

With many blessings interlaced.

The most humble man to walk the earth;

So precious and so rare,

But has impacted billions of souls indeed

Through His anointed touch and care.

The humble wretched cross;

Where the Father’s will was done,

When our humble Lord and Savior

Became a propitiation for everyone.

For everyone who places trust in Him

And have crossed from death to life,

As we call upon the name of the Lord

And believe in Jesus Christ.
