A drop, the endless ocean, a breeze, the mighty gale,

A grain, the fields of harvest, a step, the mountain trail.

A sigh, the deepest sorrow, berth, the sunset, sail,

A breath, the world beginning, a Cross, salvation, hail.

Big & Small

A kiss of golden sunshine, the touch of falling rain,

The softness of the meadow, how free, the highland plains.

The rivers, calmly threading, the clouds, their endless train,

The vastness of the heavens, the smallness of the grain.

~ D.F.


Bless us in the morning, its cool and sprightly air,

Bless us in the noontime, as the heat, our spirits wear.

Bless us in the twilight, the sun now bids us fare,

Bless us, come the nighttime, in our dreams, to find You there.

~ D.F.
