February 2: “How Sweet It Is” by Day Williams

HOW SWEET IT IS

 

With feet of clay and hearts of lies

Men sally forth to seize the skies;

With broken legs and broken hearts

They hobble back, their dreams apart.

 

Without a thought to future men

They play their cards and practice Zen;

They tell their jokes and trade their lies,

While in each man his spirit dies.

 

Ignoring God while all is gain,

They look to Him in times of pain;

And when the LORD relieves their hurt,

They pack their bags and they desert.

 

They never know how much He cares,

They never know the dream’s still there;

They never know how sweet it is

To die each day, to be all His.

~Day Williams
