Look at the world around us
And what will the eye choose to see,
Do we ponder on God’s beauty
Or focus on all the negativity?
Look at the way we’re created
Miraculous in every way,
Made in the image of God Almighty
Where His glory will remain.
Look at the way of an ant
Who gathers all of her supplies,
Having no ruler, captain or overseer
But is prudent and is wise.
Look at the way a flower grows;
It is majestic and pure too,
Birthed from a seed wrapped in manure
Where God’s glory will shine through.
Look at the way of a baby’s smile
That can melt the hardest of hearts,
Because it’s God beauty and His marvellous grace
That in this vessel He imparts.
Look at the way there’s beauty for ashes
When our world comes crashing down,
And when our circumstances are resurrected
It’s where deep fulfilment will be found.
Look at the way that patience works
When we’re willing to sit and wait,
Because God’s blessings and His promises
Are never found too late.
Look at the way that God provided
A propitiation for our sins,
When He gave His Son, His only Son
To save our soul within.
And look at the way of eternity
Where an end is nowhere in sight,
Because God is the Alpha and the Omega;
Our eternal everlasting light.
