World Day of Prayer

I beg you, bear with one another in love

When I see a starry night

When I see a starry night

When I see a starry night, a harvest moon, the sun rise, a rainbow frame the sky,
Or hear the crash of waves on a stormy day, the thunder roll, gentle birdsong or a baby’s cry,
When I smell freshly baked bread, newly mown grass, laundry just in from the line, a delicate rose.
Or feel the touch of rain, sand between toes, a handshake, the fall of snow,
When I taste the saltiness of sea air, fresh fruit or veg,
I think how blessed we are.
All God breathed, God inspired, God sustained,
And I am filled with a profound sense of His good creation.
