In our Father's Arms (a poem of reassurance)

Updated on December 5, 2014
The glory of the lord...
The glory of the lord...
Of our Lord God we worship...
Of our Lord God we worship...
all honor and glory to him we give...
all honor and glory to him we give...
In every new and precious day we are given...
In every new and precious day we are given...
He helps us through the storms of life...
He helps us through the storms of life...
His splendor of the day is unmatched...
His splendor of the day is unmatched...
The evening calm is so embraced...
The evening calm is so embraced...
We are endowed in this life...
We are endowed in this life...
We are indebted to our Lord God...
We are indebted to our Lord God...
His forgiveness is great...
His forgiveness is great...


May the Lord God bless and keep you,

And hug you close, this within his arms,

Praying that he watches over us in each day,

And at night, against all terrible harms.


It is he that has made us each, not we, ourselves,

This, as his children, we understand,

This gift of life to each, is so endowed,

As our sweet breaths are given by his hand.


Since the beginning of all time, recorded,

By the most primitive of any script,

Human kind to be blessed, so loved,

Their most powerful creator, so worshiped.


The rising of the warming sun in the day,

and the moon's white light in the dark night,

Serve us as our guide and by this we abide,

Such a delight, this, for every sight.


Mankind struggles in the earthen sod,

A pathway prepared by a benevolent god,

His warmth is given and food to spare,

And in God's own ways, he learns to share.


With every turning of this world, we perceive,

No finer beauty, that he does leave,

The changing seasons from cold to the fair,

God's own creations without compare.


While upon this earth men seek to control,

Their uncaring and ignorance, to extoll,

God's forgiveness is so great and without blame,

As men continue in terrible shame.


His own son so given to right this debt,

As many to blaspheme him, he does so let.

A forgiveness, of all his heavenly caring,

And in his love, the reason, sharing.


The heavenly father watches over his own,

Every word or deed, by him is so known,

He holds us each in his powerful strong arms,

Preventing all from earthly harms.


This world is his, yet he shares with us all,

The greatest of his creations, to very small.

Our lives, of his giving, all to be living,

The bright spirit so embraced, is by his own call.

      Thank you for these beautiful words ! A reminder of how much the Heavenly Father loves his creations and soon that love will stand alone as proof without the problems of the world that hide this fact from his creations.
